Knoedler Gets a Chance

Injuries to catchers Russell Martin and Brad Ausmus created a rare opportunity for non-roster backstop Justin Knoedler, who caught all nine innings of the Dodgers’ 4-2 split-squad loss to the Angels Monday. It not only was the first time the 29-year-old Knoedler caught all nine innings of a spring game, but it was only his second start in seven Major League training camps. This is his 10th professional season and he’s had Major League call-ups by the Giants in three different seasons.

“By the sixth or seventh inning, I was hoping they wouldn’t take me out,” he said. “That was fun.” — Ken Gurnick
