t in free-agent outfielder A.J. Pollock.According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic Ron Santo Jersey , there is "increasing chatter" regarding the Dodgers' interest in signing Pollock, but there is no indication that a deal is close.Rosenthal noted that the right-handed Pollock would bring balance to a Dodgers outfield that is heavy on lefties in Cody Bellinger, Joc Pederson, Alex Verdugo and Andrew Toles.While the Dodgers still have a somewhat crowded outfield, they cleared the logjam a bit when they traded Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig to the Cincinnati Reds in December.Since Bellinger can play first base in addition to the outfield, L.A. has room to add another outfielder.It was initially thought that the Dodgers were preparing to sign Bryce Harper when they moved Kemp and Puig, but Pollock could be the beneficiary of that move instead.The 31-year-old is a one-time All-Star and Gold Glove winner , but injuries have plagued him in recent seasons.He hasn't appeared in more than 113 games in a campaign since 2015 when he hit .315 with 20 home runs, 76 RBI and 39 stolen bases for the Arizona Diamondbacks en route to the All-Star Game.Last season, Pollock hit just .257 in 113 appearances, but he clubbed a career-high 21 homers and drove in 65 runs.He could be a good fit near the top of the L.A. batting order, but his versatility would allow him to be utilized elsewhere as well.He is also a plus defender, which the Dodgers could use after they traded Puig,and Pollock is the type of do-everything player who could give manager Dave Roberts a much-needed chess piece in pursuit of a third consecutive World Series berth. The regular season has begun (officially) but the Diamondbacks still have some decisions to make regarding their 25-man roster."Diamondbacks NewsZack Greinke Named Opening Day StarterAlthough there was some speculation that Greinke might be held in reserve for game two of the season Ryne Sandberg Jersey , allowing him to forego the pomp and pageantry of Opening Day, the decision to tab Greinke as the team’s Opening Day starter for the third time for the Arizona Diamondbacks.Adam Jones Makes Spring DebutOne week after signing a one-year contract and being introduced to Arizona fans as part of the 2019 team, Adam Jones has made his spring training debut.

Despite being designated the home team, the stands were filled with Mariners fans; not surprising, given the fact that Ichiro is on Seattle’s roster in order to allow him a proper send-off in his home country of Japan, where he is arguably the biggest sports star in the baseball-crazy country. After all the festivities, the Mariners slugged their way to a 9-7 victory Billy Williams Jersey , powered in part by a Domingo Santana grand slam.Ichiro Bats Twice Before Leaving to OvationThe veteran superstar went )-for-1 with a walk before being lifted by manager Scott Servais in the bottom of the fourth inning to a standing ovation both in the stands and both clubhouses.Royals Shift Ian Kennedy to BullpenFormer Arizona ace and whipping boy, Ian Kennedy, has been moved from the Kansas City rotation into thebullpen.
