Eight Players Chosen For Hawaii Winter League

Eight players from the Dodger organization will be spending the next couple of months in Hawaii as part of the Winter League to be played there.

The players in the main will be coming from Inland Empire, the Dodgers' California League affiliate. The Hawaii League gets going Sept. 29 and continues through the championship game slated for Nov. 19.

Those chosen from the Dodgers include righthanded reliever Kyle Wilson, infielder Russ Mitchell and outfielders Jamie Hoffmann and Ryan Rogowski, all of whom with Inland Empire throughout the 2007 season.

In addition, third baseman Josh Bell and lefthander Garrett White, who moved from Great Lakes to Inland Empire late in the season, are on the list.

Other players nominated for Hawaii play are righthander Steve Johnson, who pitched at Great Lakes, and Catcher Kenley Jansen, who began the year with Great Lakes, then moved to Ogden.

In addition, Ken Howell, pitching coach for Las Vegas, will serve in this league.
