How to turn your living space into a home office, home school and more during coronavirus

It’s not something we’ve had to think about before: What happens when your family is home all or the most of the day, trying to work, do schoolwork, create, cook, exercise and relax? You might find yourself having to create multiple workspaces – for you, your spouse and your kids to do schoolwork. You also have to find ways to keep the common areas functional and free of clutter. Luckily, those with experience in working from home, as well as interior designers, professional organizers, homes...

Frustrated Dodgers, Angels fans make the most of spring-training trips – no thanks to coronavirus

GLENDALE and TEMPE, Ariz. – In one symbolic release of anger and disappointment, Dodgers fan Chris Donat actually turned to the one thing that had bothered him so much these past few months. Frustrated upon hearing spring-training games would be canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, just hours before he was set to make a 10-hour drive to the desert, Donat’s reaction came quickly … almost instinctively. “I took a baseball bat to a trash can just like the cheatin’ (expletive) Astros,” Donat s...

Dodgers weighing options amid coronavirus shutdown

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Dodgers were in the process of counting heads and raised hands on Friday, trying to determine exactly where all of their players are headed now that they were granted the ability to choose from a number of options. After a Major League Baseball Players’ Association meeting on Friday regarding the coronavirus protocol, players can either stay near the location of their team’s spring training facility, return to their offseason home or head to the city where their team is loc...

Dodgers will keep preparing for season during coronavirus hiatus

GLENDALE, Ariz. — While admitting that a two-week delay to spring training will create some hurdles, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said his team remains committed to its preparation for the upcoming season. Roberts is all for MLB hitting the pause button on spring training as a safety precaution because of the expanding coronavirus public health concern. The Dodgers’ facility in the desert will remain open during that time for players only and Roberts said he expects the team to use it regularly....

Dodgers beat Brewers in game shortened by rain

THE GAME: The Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-1 on Wednesday night at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz., in a game called in the bottom of the seventh inning due to rain. PITCHING REPORT: Playing through persistent rain, Walker Buehler was not at his sharpest. In four innings, Buehler gave up just one run on three hits but also walked three while striking out four. … Kenley Jansen was scheduled to throw a bullpen session during Wednesday’s workout but moved it to the game with weather expe...

Dodgers ‘holding’ for possible changes in response to coronavirus

GLENDALE, Ariz. — With the state of Washington restricting the size of public gatherings, colleges canceling classes in favor of “distance learning,” the NBA playing at least one game in a near-empty arena and the NCAA announcing it would hold the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments without fans, the likelihood of MLB following suit in some fashion now seems inevitable. “I haven’t done that since like A-ball,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said playfully of holding games in empty stadiums. “...

Kenley Jansen’s search for answers ‘vital’ to Dodgers’ 2020 hopes

GLENDALE, Ariz. — For five seasons from 2013 through 2017, life at the back end of games was good for Kenley Jansen. Hitters flailed at his cut fastball. The pitch was compared favorably to the cutter that carried Mariano Rivera through a Hall of Fame career. Jansen was as close to a sure thing as you could find in baseball, converting 196 of 214 save opportunities. He won the Trevor Hoffman Award as the top reliever in the National League twice and had one of the best seasons in history by a re...

Clayton Kershaw draws Dodgers’ Opening Day assignment for ninth time

GLENDALE, Ariz. >> Same as it ever was. After a one-year pause, Clayton Kershaw will be back in his familiar place on Opening Day — starting for the Dodgers. Manager Dave Roberts made the assignment official after Monday’s morning workout at Camelback Ranch. The Opening Day start will be Kershaw’s ninth, a franchise record. He started every Opening Day from 2011 through 2018 (a franchise record for consecutive season-opening starts). Last spring, however, he was sidelined by a sore shoulder and ...

Catcher job is in Will Smith’s hands, but Austin Barnes makes it a ‘partnership’

GLENDALE, Ariz. – It is a reflection of the job done by the Dodgers’ player development staff that Will Smith says nothing really surprised him after making the jump to the big leagues last summer. “Not really,” Smith said. “I felt prepared when I was called up.” Nonetheless, Smith’s debut was surprising. He matched the club record for most home runs (six) by a rookie in his first 14 games, set the franchise record with 19 RBI in his first 14 games and became the first Dodger catcher and only th...

Dodgers have a plan for Blake Treinen’s bounceback season

GLENDALE, Ariz. — When he was briefly on the free-agent market this winter, Blake Treinen was looking for a team that could help him recapture the form he had during the 2018 season. The Dodgers have a plan for that. “It’s nothing crazy,” Treinen said after making his first appearance in a Cactus League game this spring Saturday. “There’s two steps. Some of its mechanical. Some of its usage. That’s about the gist of it I’ll lay out there.” The mechanical adjustments were just “subtle tweaks” in ...

Mariners’ grand slam sinks Dodgers

THE GAME: Kyle Lewis hit a tie-breaking grand slam in the seventh inning off Dodgers reliever Reymin Guduan, and the Seattle Mariners went on to a 9-3 victory over the Dodgers on Friday night at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz. PITCHING REPORT: Ross Stripling didn’t give up a run in his first two Cactus League appearances. But he gave up a home run to Jake Fraley on Friday night, one of four hits he allowed in three innings while striking out three. … Right-hander Dennis Santana followed Strip...

Dodgers knew Kenta Maeda wanted to start but say he never demanded a trade

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Something might have been lost in translation. Former Dodgers pitcher Kenta Maeda has his own YouTube channel. On it last week, he posted a video where he talked about his trade from the Dodgers to the Minnesota Twins. An interpretation made the rounds characterizing Maeda’s commentary as saying he had requested a trade from the Dodgers in order to avoid another move to the bullpen. Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said no trade request was ever made. “H...

What changes for Cody Bellinger now that he has an MVP award?

GLENDALE, Ariz. >> It is a life-changing achievement to win a Most Valuable Player award. But how does it really change your life? “Got a little more money,” Dodgers outfielder and 2019 National League MVP Cody Bellinger said, referring to the one-year, $11.5 million contract he signed this winter (the largest salary for any first-year arbitration-eligible player). “Other than that, my life hasn’t changed at all.” It might. The MVP label brings with it certain expectations — like continuing to p...

Matt Beaty should be a comfortable fit on Dodgers’ bench

GLENDALE, Ariz. — After finding his way into 99 games as a rookie last year, Matt Beaty should have a certain level of comfort about his place in the Dodgers’ plans this season. Nope. “I mean, you just look at all the guys in this clubhouse. The 40-man that we have is incredibly deep so you’re never really comfortable,” Beaty said. “You’re always proving that you belong and should be there. So for me, it’s the same – just proving that I belong and going out there and playing my game.” Beaty’s ga...

Dodgers see Brusdar Graterol as potential bullpen bonus

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Brusdar Graterol certainly didn’t feel like damaged goods. As the Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox and Dodgers scrutinized his medical records last month, Graterol was working out in preparation for spring training at his offseason home in Ft. Myers, Fla. – ironically, the spring training home to two of the three teams debating his immediate professional future. “It was a little awkward because the guys I was working out with would look at me and wonder whether I was going to ge...

Julio Urias might finally see Dodgers willing to expand his role

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Since signing with the Dodgers five days after his 16th birthday and making his major-league debut as teenager, Julio Urias has had a constant, silent companion – his potential. It has held him back as much as helped him. Urias lived with pitch and innings restriction for fear of what overuse at a young age might do to that potential. Recovering from major shoulder surgery in 2017, the bubble wrap only grew tighter. As a result, Urias has made more relief appearances (35) than ...

Trip to Driveline helped Dodgers’ Joe Kelly put a finger on his fastball problem

GLENDALE, Ariz. — When the Dodgers players scattered following the end of their 2019 season, many had offseason trips planned to tropical locales in Hawaii, Cancun and Aruba. But the most frequent destination seems to have been … Seattle. Add Joe Kelly to the list of Dodgers pitchers – one that includes Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen and Alex Wood – who made a trip to Driveline Baseball near Seattle. The sports complex located in Kent, Wash., specializes in data-driven performance training for p...

Dodgers’ Justin Turner not thinking beyond this year – the final year of his contract

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Justin Turner has been unemployed before. So he doesn’t seem too concerned about entering the final year of his contract with the Dodgers this season. “Is this my last year?” the Dodgers third baseman said when asked how much his contract status occupies his thoughts. “That’s my answer. No. “I’m not worried about that. I’m here to win a championship and whatever happens after that we’ll see.” Non-tendered by the New York Mets in December of 2013, Turner still didn’t have a team...

Dodgers excited to see Clayton Kershaw healthy after last spring’s sore shoulder

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Last spring was not a good time to be Clayton Kershaw. A year ago at this time, the Dodgers’ ace was shut down with a sore shoulder that he later admitted made him “nervous” about his immediate future. This spring, Kershaw has not missed a throwing session of any kind. He has already thrown live batting practice to hitters and will make his Cactus League debut on Friday. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he watched Kershaw’s bullpen session Tuesday and continues to be enthused ...

Dodgers prospect Cody Thomas stars but White Sox salvage a tie

THE GAME: Outfielder Cody Thomas hit a solo home run for the first run of the game, robbed a home run with a catch at the wall and threw out a runner at home plate. But the Chicago White Sox scored in the top of the ninth inning to salvage a 2-2 tie with the Dodgers on Monday afternoon at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz. PITCHING REPORT:  Ross Stripling gave up a single and struck out two in his first spring inning. … Dylan Floro retired the side in order in his spring debut. … Lefty reliever ...

Jimmy Nelson’s long road back could lead to Dodgers bullpen

GLENDALE, Ariz. >> In early September 2017, Jimmy Nelson was one of the better young starting pitchers in the National League, a sturdy 28-year-old about to be 12-6 with a 3.49 ERA in 29 starts for the Milwaukee Brewers. And then, he wasn’t. Nelson was spinning a shutout four innings into a Sept. 8 start at Wrigley Field. With one out in the top of the fifth, Nelson lined a base hit into left field, rounded first base hard then thought better of it and scrambled back to first base, diving with h...

Lightning bid to return to winning ways vs. Coyotes

The Tampa Bay Lightning hope to start a new winning streak Saturday when they face the Arizona Coyotes in Glendale, Ariz. The Lightning's franchise record 11-game winning streak came to an end on the road against the Vegas Golden Knights Thursday night in a 5-3 loss. Tampa Bay, however, sits comfortably in second place in the Atlantic Division and is within striking distance of the Boston Bruins.

Life for a lefty specialist like Dodgers’ Adam Kolarek could be changing this year

GLENDALE, Ariz. — When they came for the LOOGYs this winter, Adam Kolarek didn’t worry about it. He’s never seen himself that way. “When it was brought up last year, I kind of knew it was something that was going to be happening. Even in Triple-A, I figured it was going to happen. I just assumed it was already passed,” Kolarek said of the recently-ratified rule change which will require relief pitchers entering the game to face a minimum of three batters or complete an inning. “I think the main ...

Corey Seager may be a forgotten man in Dodgers’ loaded lineup

GLENDALE, Ariz. >> The question catches Corey Seager off guard, like a ground ball taking an unexpected hop. Do you think people have forgotten how good you are? “I don’t know how to answer that question,” Seager says with a laugh. “Um, I don’t really know. I mean, I don’t think about that. I don’t know that I’ve ever thought about that. My place is just to go out, compete and perform.

Alex Wood back in blue, with inside track to spot in Dodgers’ rotation

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Seems like old times – but not quite. Acquired by the Dodgers in a midseason 2015 trade with the Atlanta Braves, Alex Wood faced the same situation each of the next three springs. The Dodgers were loaded with starters and he always seemed to be on the bubble, fighting for one of those spots in the rotation and trying to avoid a move to the bullpen. More often than not, he was successful. Wood made 62 starts for the Dodgers from 2016-18, going 26-14 with a 3.29 ERA and making th...

It was still the reverberations from the sign-stealing scandal and the Houston Astros’ attempts to take responsibility. “Obviously this isn’t going to go away,” Turner said Friday, the first day of workouts for pitchers and catchers. “There’s going to be questions dragging on for a long time an...
