Lux In Uniform And Soon To Play Plus More Friday Dodgers News

The Dodgers added a bunch of players to their 60 man as well as having one prominent player report for the first time. Here’s what went on this Friday at camp.

  • The Dodgers added catcher Carson Taylor, second baseman Michael Busch, outfielder Anthony Garcia, and pitchers Bobby Miller, Landon Knack, Edubray Ramos, and Ryan Pepiot to the 60 man pool as non-roster players. All but Garcia and Ramos were drafted in 2019 and 2020 by the Dodgers. Dave Roberts says there’ll be more additions to the pool.
  • Gavin Lux finally reported to camp for the first time this Summer. Dave Roberts says he’ll play an intrasquad game in a few days, which will give him some time to get his game legs under him.
  • The Dodgers announced that they are going to televise and stream every scrimmage game during Summer Camp.

  • Joe Kelly says working out at home against his net during the hiatus was a “blessing.” During that time, he developed comfort using his four seam pitch. He also mentioned that even though David Price opted out, he still maintains contact through the players messaging thread. Kelly says Price “literally is the first one firing off texts the next day.”
  • There were adjustments made to the batters eye in centerfield.

Those seats were always covered until renovations this past year.

  • Top catching prospect, Diego Cartaya, will join the team in Summer Camp soon. Cartaya is 18 years old and got his first stint of pro ball in the U.S. just last year. He’ll likely be in camp just so the team can continue his development under their watch.
  • Dave Roberts says Walker Buehler “is not dealing with anything in particular…” Dave says Buehler pitched two innings “up and down” in a bullpen session on Thursday. Doc assumes Buehler will get to throw in a game in the next few days.
  • Doc provided an update on the pace of Walker Buehler and Julio Urias. He says both pitchers are “right on track.” He points out that breaking camp with the ability to pitch six innings or throw ninety pitches is ideal, and with that in mind, Buehler and Urias “are in a good place.”
