Making Moves: Matt Wallach, Sean White, and the World Baseball Classic


Matt Wallach has replaced Eliezer Alfonzo in major-league camp for Spring Training.

Alfonzo, one of the tens of Spring Training invitees operating on a minor-league deal, is suffering from dengue virus (yes, really). Eliezer will report to the minor-league portion of Camelback Ranch when he’s healthy enough to do so. Nobody knows when that will be, but he was a long-shot to make the roster anyway.


The Dodgers signed soon-to-be 32-year-old righty reliever Sean White to a minor-league deal.

White will serve as AAA depth, as the Dodgers have a stacked pen as it is.


Three Dodgers have withdrawn from the World Baseball Classic, as Chad covered earlier.

Paco Rodriguez, Alfredo Amezaga, and Peter Moylan, three Dodgers with shots at making the Opening Day roster, have withdrawn from the World Baseball Classic to focus on making the club.

The less Dodger participants the better as far as I’m concerned.
