- The Dodgers' Spring Training battle to watch
The next five weeks will see lots of shuffling on Major League rosters. Here are the most intriguing positional battles on each of the 30 MLB clubs.

Clayton Kershaw on Monday was the first Dodger to throw live batting practice this spring, with opposing batters Russell Martin and Josh Thole issuing rave reviews while Kershaw was typically underwhelmed.

On this opening week of Spring Training, all 30 Major League teams have one thing in common: optimism. Here's an optimism cheat sheet for each of them.

Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler resumed playing catch on Sunday, and manager Dave Roberts said his first bullpen session could be on Wednesday.
- Back to pitching, Allie eager to show off arm
Every player chases a dream, the chase tougher for some. Stetson Allie, 27, is in his third incarnation, a pitcher-turned-outfielder-turned pitcher in Dodgers camp as a non-roster invitee with a 101 mph fastball.
- Seager has 'really good feeling' in recovery
Corey Seager's rehab from elbow and hip operations continues without setback, and the Dodgers shortstop still sees no reason why he won't be ready for Opening Day.
- Dodgers 'slow-playing' Buehler this spring
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed the club is "slow-playing" pitcher Walker Buehler early this spring, but insisted Buehler will be ready when the regular season opens.

When it comes to prospects, the Dodgers are deeper behind the plate than they've been in decades.

- Dodgers not rushing Urias' road to recovery
The first round of bullpen sessions concluded for the Dodgers on Thursday, and the early leader for maximum buzz was Julio Urias. The left-hander was dazzling in his session, but at this point he has an uphill battle to make the Opening Day roster.
- Buehler's brilliance drawing some high praise
The Dodgers know just how good Walker Buehler is and want to keep him that way, which is why he's the only pitcher in camp who hasn't thrown a bullpen session yet.
- Friedman on Dodgers: 'I really like our team'
Did the Dodgers, after losing back-to-back World Series, do enough over the winter to get a ring? Andrew Friedman, the president of baseball operations, said there's no shortage of feedback on the question.
- Trim, fit Jansen enters spring on a mission
Kenley Jansen said cardiologist Dr. Koonlawee Nademanee "is the best probably in the world" and it must be true, because the surgeon not only fixed Jansen's heart but also his mind.

- Dodgers have MLB's best pitching. Here's why
The 2019 Dodgers are going to be good, and that's in large part thanks to the fact that they're projected to have the best run-prevention unit in baseball.
- Dodgers aim for positive mindset as ST opens
For all the insistence last Spring Training from the Dodgers that they would not suffer from the so-called "World Series hangover" after losing in seven games to the Astros, that's pretty much what happened. The hope, and the goal, is that lessons learned from last year will prevent a similar occurrence this year.
