• Mattingly said the team's workout at Nationals Park was modified a bit to account for the weather in Washington, where the heat index climbed well over 100.
• Of the All-Star break, Mattingly said: "It was a time to basically ask guys to turn it off, really, turn the brain off and relax, try to diffuse a little bit, but make sure we turn it back on coming into the workout today, knowing that we've got to be ready to play."
• The Dodgers have hired Isao O'Jimi as their head scout, Japan. O'Jimi worked for the Mets from 1997-2011, first as a scout and then as director of Pacific Rim scouting, starting in December 2003. He was involved with the signings of several players during that time, including Kazuo Matsui and Tsuyoshi Shinjo.
