Podcast: 'Dugout Blues' episode 27 - Greinke, Crawford, Cruz, WBC, Cano

On this episode of "Dugout Blues," Jared Massey (Dodger Diamond) talk about everything going on in Dodger spring training before we head down to Arizona ourselves.

Zack Greinke's elbow injury isn't a good thing, but it might not be bad as it seems. It's still something to be concerned about.

Carl Crawford faced live pitching (batting practice) for the first time since becoming a Dodger. He hit against J.P. Howell and Kenley Jansen.

Luis Cruz and his flat-out dumb actions in the World Baseball Classic are discussed.

Prospects were optioned to minor-league camp (Steve Ames, Matt Magill) while other non-roster invitees were reassigned (Brian Barden, Omar Luna, Jeremy Moore).

FanGraphs' Marc Hulet released his the site's Top 100 prospects for 2013. Four Dodgers appear, but none higher than No. 91 (Zach Lee). The word "lazy" is said a few times in regards to the overall rankings.

And we close with a listener question listener questions (proud of you folks this week). Too many good ones to list all of them, but we touch on second base and whether Robinson Cano is a viable option for the Dodgers in 2014 and beyond. Could the Dodgers stick with Mark Ellis or do something crazy like put Hanley Ramirez there? We also answer the Yasiel Puig question, which is becoming a more prevalent question these days.

That's it for episode 27. We're in Arizona for the next 5-7 days and we'll bring all kinds of new content to the listeners. Thanks for listening.
