Today’s pregame tidbits

Hiroki Kuroda is going to play catch today, and if he comes out of that OK, he will throw another bullpen tomorrow. Cory Wade is going to throw a simulated game at Camelback Ranch tomorrow, and if he comes out of that OK, he’s going to start a rehab assignment at high Single-A Inland Empire this weekend and possibly return to the Dodgers when he becomes eligible on Tuesday. Jason Schmidt is going to stay in extended spring training at least a little while longer, so his rehab is on hold. … Balloting for this year’s All-Star teams officially began today. If you can’t get to a ballpark (or even if you can), you can vote on line at mlb.com. … Ned Colletti said today he is no longer looking for another bench player from outside the organization, so Blake DeWitt will stay in the majors for the time being. Colletti indicated that while getting DeWitt enough at-bats remains a concern, Joe Torre has been doing a good job of getting him a decent number of them. … Finally, Forbes magazine released its annual valuation rankings of major-league clubs, and the Dodgers were fourth. They have a current value of $722 million, according to the publication. You can check out the whole list at the following web address:

    You mentioned Inland Empire and I am reminded that I have a party to go to in Rancho Cucamonga. I rather go catch a Single-A game in San Bernardino.

    Is not enough sample size to be voting for the All-Star yet. I don’t know why they release that so early.
