News and notes from in and around Chavez Ravine:

  • The Los Angeles Times reports that the bid to own the Dodgers is now down to four suitors, with Magic Johnson leading the pack. Johnson, who has partnered with former Major League executive Stan Kasten, has put in the highest bid at $1.6 billion. Bill Shaikin of the Times also reports that Golden State Warriors co-owner Peter Guber has joined Magic Johnson's group as a minority investor.
  • SB Nation's True Blue LA looks at the development of starter Nathan Eovaldi and whether he has a shot at making the rotation this year.
  • MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports on the Dodgers new head athletic trainer, Sue Falsone, the first female to hold that title in any of the four major American sports. Formerly the Dodgers physical therapist, Falsone took over for Stan Conte in December.
  • Gurnick also reports that the Dodgers have taken large leaps forward in providing the players with the latest technology to improve their game. Each player has been given the opportunity to download Bloomberg's "Sports Pitch Review" app--for the low monthly price of $200--which allows them to look up exclusive footage on their iPad from a variety game situations.
