Nothing too crazy for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Day 3 at Camelback Ranch.

Grandal and Barnes to Split Time

We weren’t too sure how the catching situation would go heading into the season and now we have an idea.

Wood Tweaks Ankle

Alex Wood’s bullpen session was pushed to Friday reports Ken Gurnick of MLB.com:

It’s early in spring so if Wood is still bothered by the ankle then he’ll rest until he can go. Hopefully this isn’t a sign of things to come for Dodgers pitchers.

Buehler Misses Workout

Try not to stress out but:

Now it’s very likely that this is nothing and is simply something random. It’s just hard not to have a slight pessimistic view based on previous years.

Actually, let’s be positive. Walker Buehler is fine.

Puig Isn’t Worried About a New Agent

It’s known that Yasiel Puig’s agency dropped him as a client but what isn’t known is why. And that’s still not known.

What we do know now (thanks to McCullough) is that Puig isn’t looking for an agent presently:

“I’m not looking for anyone.”

Puig went on to add to his lack of concern about the situation:

“I’m not even worried about that. If I don’t hit, no agent is ever going to get me any contract or money.”

Whatever Puig did, it doesn’t seem to be connected with the team so it’s not too big a deal at this point.

Jansen is Good at Social Media

One of the best things to emerge in recent weeks is Kenley Jansen’s social media game.

He gets it.
