Early Turnout for Dodgers
Shortstop Rafael Furcal and second baseman Ronnie Belliard remain the only members of the Dodgers 40-man Major League roster yet to check in to Camelback Ranch-Glendale, but are expected to participate in the first full-squad workout on Friday. Matt Kemp appeared earlier, but did not work out with the club Monday or Tuesday.
Non-roster invitee Brian Giles has yet to arrive, even though he needs to prove to the staff he can rebound from chronic arthritis in his knee to prolong his career after missing the second half of 2009 with San Diego.
Of the 11 non-roster infielders and outfielders invited to camp, six took part in practice Tuesday.
Reliever Ronald Belisario was still missing because of visa problems, but manager Joe Torre said he expected to see him in camp later this week. – Ken Gurnick
