Even LeBron released a statement on CC's retirement!: "I want to congratulate CC on an incredible Major League career. Not only is he one of the best pitchers to ever play the game, but he'll also go down as one of the great competitors to ever pick up a baseball. His genuine love of the game and his undeniable passion have brought so much joy to fans for 19 seasons. It's been an honor to watch him play and I'm excited to see what he'll take on next. Congrats my friend." -Via Yankees PR

Corey Seager took grounders with the rest of the infielders today, but didn't throw across the diamond. That and live BP is what's missing for him to play in games. He dropped some weight over the offseason after cutting out dairy and going through a grueling strength-and-agility program in LA. "You gotta literally rebuild your body back up," Seager said.

Walker Buehler hasn't thrown a bullpen session in camp for precautionary reasons. The Dodgers will take it slow with him early, then eventually ramp him up so that he will be unrestricted during the season. "We're on the same page, and he understands that he'll still be ready for the season," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "He understands this is the best thing for him."
