The first Spring Training workout dates, both for pitchers and catchers and full squads, has been released for all 30 of the Major League clubs.
Pitchers for every team except the Nationals and Dodgers report on either February 14 or 15. The Nats and Dodgers pitchers and catchers have to report by February 16. I can only assume that it’s because the Nats and Dodgers are old and they need more time because they all drive ten miles per hour under the speed limit.
The Dodgers and Rangers have the latest full-squad workout days too — February 21. I’ll think of a funny reason for that later. The first player who played for both of those teams that popped into my head is Milton Bradley and he’s not funny at all, so let’s just put a pin in that for now.
