Dodgers confirm staff changes

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Among those not reporting to Dodgertown this Spring Training are Pat Screnar, Todd Clausen and Dan Feinstein, the team confirmed Tuesday.

Screnar, the team's physical therapist since 1981, resigned this week. He was particularly instrumental in the comeback of Orel Hershiser from reconstructive shoulder surgery.

Clausen has been the Dodgers' strength and conditioning coach. He left the club to become the personal trainer of Dodgers closer Eric Gagne.

Feinstein, hired as coordinator of baseball operations by former general manager Paul DePodesta after the 2004 season, has taken a job with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Also not returning is co-equipment manager Dave Dickinson, whose dismissal was confirmed last month.
