PHOENIX -- Showers forced the Dodgers to practice indoors Wednesday.
Instead of taking live batting practice on the rain-soaked field, hitters took their swings in the covered batting cages.
The pitchers who were scheduled to throw, including Chad Billingsley and Chris Capuano, threw as scheduled.
Some other notes:
- The first major injury of the spring was sustained by Dodgers spokesman Joe Jareck, who is believed to have torn his hamstring trying to leg out a triple in an employee softball game.
- Two Dodgers were listed among Baseball America’s top 100 prospects: Korean left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu (No. 42) and Cuban outfielder Yasiel Puig (No. 47). The two players, who were both signed last year, cost the Dodgers a combined $103.7 million. Pitcher Zack Lee, who ranked 62nd on the 2012 list, dropped out of the top 100.
