Giants 10, Dodgers 8: Down Goes Milton

The Dodgers dropped their final spring game in Arizona, losing 10-8 in Scottsdale to the Giants.  A few notes from the game:

  • The Giants' 19-year old uber prospect Madison Bumgarner allowed only a Juan Castro double in his three innings.  I have a feeling Bumgarner, rated by Baseball America as the ninth best prospect in baseball, will be pitching at AT&T Park sooner than we think
  • Eric Milton gave up 8 runs, bringing his spring totals to 38 hits, 29 runs, and five homers in 19.2 innings.  After the game, it was announced that Milton, as well as Tanyon Sturtze -- who might still make the club -- agreed to go to Albuquerque, per Ken Gurnick.  Of course, this all but assures James McDonald the fifth starter spot.
  • The Dodgers outrighted Danny Ardoin to AAA, removing him from the 40-man roster.  Ardoin has ten days to accept or decline the assignment.  If he decides to go to Albuquerque, Ardoin will backup A.J. Ellis while earning a relatively high minor league salary of $210,750.
  • Hiroki Kuroda had a solid, albeit short, final spring tuneup, allowing one run in three innings.  Perhaps more importantly, he allowed no flyballs.
  • Tomorrow's game against the Angels starts a run of three straight games at Dodger Stadium.  The game, a 7:10 start, will be televised by KCAL, MLB Network, and MLB TV, depending on your preference or location.
