Here’s tonight’s tidbits from Week 2 at Camelback Ranch:
Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts announced his Spring Training, Cactus League starting pitcher will be…..Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw is scheduled to pitch just one inning, so he’ll be finished quickly. Hershiser’s day will be done as Vin Scully says, “before the seats are warm”.
Per Ken Gurnick: Julio Urias threw two simulated innings of live batting practice today. He faced Yasmani Grandal, Corey Seager, Joc Pederson and Justin Turner. Batter’s contact was reported as weak grounders and short flares. Quoting Gurnick, Urias was “simply overpowering”.
Injury report: Coach Orel Hershiser pulled a hamstring while demonstrating pitching techniques.
