Dodgers Nation Week In Review: February 2 – February 8
The biggest news this week was the signing of Bronson Arroyo with the Arizona Diamondbacks for two years, $23.5 million. With the Dodgers losing out on another starting pitcher, they made smaller gains in signing pitcher Paul Mahlom to a one-year contract. Along with the Mahlom signing, the Dodgers also completed a minor league deal with Justin Turner, who appears to have a fighting chance at starting Opening Day at second base.
With spring training right already here, the Dodgers announced their 57-man spring training roster just two days before pitchers and catchers reported. Notable roster appearances include starting pitchers Matt Magill, Stephen Fife, and Zach Lee who will all compete for the fifth spot in the rotation.
Also interesting to note, Chad Billingsley announced that he feels no setbacks during bullpen session as he tries to work himself back into the rotation after Tommy John surgery.
