Found April 02, 2013 on Feelin' Kinda Blue:
The next Dodger minor-league affiliate to announce its roster is the High-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes of the California League. 2013 Great Lakes Loons opening day roster Last year, the Quakes boasted an impressive pitching staff that included Garrett Gould, Zach Lee, Chris Reed, Angel Sanchez and Andres Santiago. This season, in the hitter-friendly league, the team looks to have another potentially strong pitching staff. Ross Stripling and Duke von Schamann – both 2012 draftees (fifth and 15th, respectively) – figure to head the rotation, along with Cal League returners Gould and Jon Michael Redding. Jarret Martin, who made two appearances with the Quakes in 2012, will fill out the rotation. Again, like the Loons, I hit on 14 of 25 players from my January prediction.

Dodgers' Carl Crawford sits for second-straight game

The Dodgers are either playing the splits early or Carl Crawford's elbow is bothering him.  He sat out for the second-straight game to start the season yesterday.  No real reason has been given for Crawford not being in the lineup, but considering his ongoing soreness after Tommy John surgery, it would seem the elbow is the real reason he hasn't played.
