Hiroki Kuroda will make his second start of the spring today, and if the likely rest of the rotation is any indication, Kuroda will have a good outing:
|Dodger Pitchers Making Second Start This Spring|
|Vicente Padilla||Mar 10||Arizona||3.0||4||1||1||1||4|
|Eric Stults||Mar 12||CPBL||3.0||0||0||0||1||4|
|Chad Billingsley||Mar 13||Arizona||3.0||3||0||0||1||4|
Kenley Jansen, who was optioned. The number of players in major league camp now stands at 61.. Joining them was catcher-turned-pitcher
Here are the lineups, which include Garret Anderson, making his Dodger debut, at designated hitter::
The scheduled pitchers for the Rangers today are Derek Holland, Geoff Geary, Clay Rapada, Pedro Strop, Michael Kirkman, and Willie Eyre. Texas has a split squad, with the rest of their team back home in Surprise to face the Diamondbacks.
Tomorrow, the Dodgers travel to Tempe, for Diablo Stadium and a Dr. Pepper! Probable pitchers for Monday are Padilla, Ramon Ortiz, and Luis Ayala. I am guessing the plan is for pitchers on the starter's program -- including Padilla and Ortiz -- to pitch four innings in their third appearance (up from two and three, respectively, in the first two outings).
The Dodgers have quite a few players from minor league camp in uniform for today's game:
TV: Prime Ticket (the next four games are on TV; tomorrow, we get the Angels' broadcast on Fox Sports West, Tuesday is an off day, then both Wednesday and Thursday back on Prime Ticket)
Radio: KABC 790 and the Dodger Radio Network.
