Dodgers spring training reporting dates: Pitchers & catchers report Feb. 8

Eric Stephen | True Blue LA

There are 53 days until the best four words of winter: pitchers and catchers report.

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers on Tuesday announced their tentative reporting dates for spring training, and their 2014 will begin a little earlier than almost every other team.

Pitchers and catchers will report to spring training at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz. on Feb. 8, and hold their first workout one day later. The deadline day for position players to report is Feb. 13, with the first full squad workout scheduled for Feb. 14.

The collective bargaining agreement stipulates that pitchers and catchers have a first workout no earlier than 45 days prior to the start of the championship season, which given that March 31 is opening day would mean Feb. 14. Similarly, position players aren't required to workout more than 40 days prior to opening day, which would normally mean Feb. 19. But with the Dodgers and Diamondbacks opening their regular season with two games in Sydney, Australia on March 22-23, they both get to start their spring training a little earlier than everyone else.

The Dodgers open their 2014 Cactus League schedule on Wednesday, Feb. 26 against the Diamondbacks at Salt River Field. Their first game at Camelback Ranch is one day later, hosting Arizona in Glendale.

The Dodgers will play Cactus League games in Arizona through March 16, then fly to Australia that night. The team will play an exhibition game on March 21 against Team Australia before their two regular season games against the Diamondbacks. After opening their regular season, the Dodgers will return home for three more exhibition games against the Angels, on March 27-28 at Dodger Stadium and on March 29 in Anaheim.
