Videos & Pictures: 2012 Winter Development Program

Today was the third day of the Dodgers Winter Development Program. The Dodgers invited the media to view the workout that consisted of 15 prospects. With the great weather, it felt like Spring Training!

8 Pitchers and 7 Hitters.

Pitchers -

Steven Ames, Michael Antonini, Rubby De La Rosa, Stephen Fife, Shawn Tolleson, Josh Wall, Allen Webster, Chris Withrow.

Hitters -

Alex Castellanos, Griff Erickson, Tim Federowicz, Tyler Henson, Alfredo Silverio, Scott Van Slyke
Matt Wallach.

Dee Gordon and Justin Sellers are not part of the program but they were there working out.

Rubby De La Rosa - He's doing well from Tommy John surgery. Don Mattingly expects him to get into competition by July.

Even though they are not part of the whole program, Sellers and Gordon were working out. Gordon is planning to stay in L.A. until he reports to Spring Training in Arizona.

Catcher Tim Federowicz. Not sure if he can make the Opening Day roster since the Dodgers are planning on having A.J. Ellis and Matt Treanor. Hopefully he comes up later in the season.

Meet Alex Castellanos. Who is Castellanos? Remember that he came over to the Dodgers from the Rafael Furcal trade. I noticed Castellanos was playing at 2nd base. I'm assuming Juan Uribe will be at 3rd. The 2nd base depth chart includes Mark Ellis, Jerry Hairston and Justin Sellers.

Mattingly talks about De La Rosa's progress.



Mattingly talks about the Winter development program.



Justin Sellers -



Gorman Erickson - Big dude. Looked good taking swings. Future catcher in L.A.?



Matt Wallach - He looked more comfortable at the cage without Lasorda telling him what to do. {linked here}



Kinda sad that I didn't get to see the pitchers since they were at the bullpen.

Brandon Lennox of True Blue L.A. was there and has some excellent notes. Please read them. {linked here}

I have a few more videos. I'll try to upload those soon.

Looking forward to this season!
