Question of the Day
Manager: Don Mattingly (fourth season).
2013: 92-70, NL West champions, lost to St. Louis in NLCS.
Training Town: Glendale, Ariz.
Park: Camelback Ranch.
First Workouts: Feb. 9 (pitchers and catchers)/14 (position players).
He’s Outta Here: 2B Mark Ellis, 2B-OF Skip Schumaker, INF Nick Punto, RHP Edinson Volquez, RHP Ricky Nolasco, RHP Ronald Belisario, 3B Jerry Hairston Jr., INF Michael Young, LHP Chris Capuano, RHP Carlos Marmol.
Going campin’: The big-budget Dodgers had a mostly quiet offseason - at least in terms of additions. Their biggest acquisition was Haren, who got a $10 million, one-year deal. He’ll compete for a spot in a deep rotation that includes Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu in the top three spots. RHPs Josh Beckett and Chad Billingsley will try to bounce back from surgeries. Kershaw, coming off his second Cy Young Award at age 25, received a $215 million, seven-year contract that makes him baseball’s richest pitcher. CF Matt Kemp had two operations during the offseason and likely won’t be ready in time for the early season opener in Australia against Arizona. With Ellis gone, Guerrero will try to earn the starting job at second base. Another Cuban, Yasiel Puig, will command attention as he tries to follow up his stellar rookie season while facing questions about his maturity after an offseason arrest for speeding. Mattingly comes to camp with a new three-year deal, shedding the lame-duck status that dogged him last year.
