Rain forces Dodgers camp indoors at Camelback


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A day after blue skies and temperatures in the 70s made for a picturesque workout at Camelback Ranch, dark clouds and rain on Wednesday replaced the perfect Spring Training weather. The inclimate weather forced the Dodgers to adjust their schedule, as the club moved all activities -- including stretching -- indoors to escape the wet fields.

The pitchers who were scheduled to throw live batting practice Wednesday -- Chad Billingsley, Chris Capuano and Paco Rodriguez -- still threw; there just wasn't anyone swinging at the pitches.

"They'll do their work, they just won't actually be facing a hitter," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "There will still be someone in there standing at the plate, though."
