In what really comes as no surprise, Jo Torre announced that Doug Mientkiewicz will not make the team. His days were probably numbered when Garrett Anderson was signed. Joe
expressed interest in keeping Doug at AAA in case he is needed later in the season, but Joe also understands that Doug wants to play in the majors. The end result is that Mientkiewicz will take a couple of days off to decide what he wants to do. As we speak, his agent is speed-dialing and spamming every other major league club, looking for a fit.
What it all means (pick one):
- The Dodgers will carry 3 catchers – Martin, Ausmus & Ellis – Doubtful;
- The Dodgers will keep Hu or Green – Unlikely; or
- The Dodgers will keep 12 pitchers – Most Likely!
What’s your opinion?

Substitute Martin and Padilla in the last two spots and that is probably our Opening Day lineup.
