Pitchers & Catchers Report - Kershaw Opening Day Starter; Jansen & Guerra Anchor Bullpen

Dodger pitchers and catchers reported today to Camelback Ranch and Don Mattingly probably made the easiest decision he'll make all year!  Clayton Kershaw was named the Opening Day starter in San Diego on April 5th and will likely start the Dodgers home opener on April 10th.

Donnie Baseball also set the back end of the bullpen for the start of the season.  Matt Guerrier will be the 7th inning pitcher, the 8th inning belongs to Kenley Jansen and the closer will once again be Javy Guerra.

The Dodgers have also hired former catcher Steve Yeager to work with the teams catchers.  He will work with the catchers during Spring Training, will work with the catchers on the major league roster when the team is at home and when they are on the road, he will work as the special-assignment catching instructor in the minor leagues.  Check out the full story here at Dodgers.com
