-Mattingly also announced a few decisions on the batting order. Incumbent shortstop Dee Gordon will be batting leadoff, with center fielder Matt Kemp slated to hit third. Gordon hit .315 in 209 plate appearances from the leadoff spot with the Dodgers last season. Kemp, who spent most of his time hitting cleanup in 2011, batted an impressive .331/.418/.647 in the 158 plate appearances in the #3 spot last year.

-Mattingly also alluded to Javy Guerra as being the closer heading into the spring.
-Blake Hawksworth, coming back from offseason surgery, hit a snag in his rehab when he suffered an infection that required additional surgery. He likely won't be ready for opening day.
-We have a Ronald Belisario sighting! The elusive righthander was spotted at the Ranch but couldn't speak to media as he was on his way to a dental appointment.
