Dodgers reliever Yimi Garcia making his case for a roster spot

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- So far, the Los Angeles Dodgers' bullpen -- the team's biggest trouble spot for much of 2014 -- has been a generally depressing story line in spring training. Closer Kenley Jansen will begin the season on the 15-day disabled list and it looks like Brandon League will join him there. J.P. Howell, perhaps the only bankable pitcher healthy, has a 7.94 ERA. Sergio Santos and Dustin McGowan, two of the new guys, didn't look particularly sharp Wednesday.

Dodgers bullpen remains entirely unsettled

GLENDALE, Ariz. – With a sizeable payroll and a clear-cut weakness -- the bullpen -- the Dodgers became a beacon for seemingly every veteran reliever in the major leagues trying to fight his way back from an injury or a down season, or, in several cases, both. Wednesday was a showcase of a few of those veteran pitchers, with Mike Adams, Sergio Santos and Dustin McGowan all pitching an inning of the Dodgers’ 7-5 loss to the Chicago Cubs.
