The latest Buzz from Camelback Ranch:
- The Dodgers clearly like Rubby De La Rosa, and it’s pretty clear to me that he could be in the rotation as soon as July or August if he continues to progress. They are taking him to LA before the regular season opens. Don Mattingly says that “you can’t teach 97, 98 MPH and it’s clear that the hitters don’t recognize his change-up.” He went on to say that he needs to work on his curve, but likened Rubby to Clayton in that “you just can’t keep them down.” If Garland is healthy, I could see him being traded in August RDLR taking a spot in the rotation. He’s the Dodgers future #2 behind Kershaw.
- Bud Selig paid the Pressbox at Camelback a visit today and clearly didn’t want to address the McCourt ownership issue. He flatly said that he wouldn’t comment on it. When asked if Ozzie was a problem, he said “that’s number 735 on my problem list.” When asked about McCourt he curtly responded “now that’s a different story.” He clearly doesn’t like the McCourt Divorce Fiasco.
