The Dodgers have ditched the designated hitter, starting with Sunday's game against the Rockies at Salt River Fields. For the remainder of the spring, Dodgers pitchers will hit in Cactus League games, beginning with starter Clayton Kershaw against Colorado.
Here are Sunday's starting lineups:
Scheduled reserves for the Dodgers on Sunday are Justin Sellers (SS), Omar Luna (2B), Tony Gwynn Jr. (CF), Scott Van Slyke (1B), Brian Barden (3B), Ramon Castro (C), Yasiel Puig (RF), and Jeremy Moore (LF).
To help make up for the 13 or so innings lost with Friday's two rainouts, the Dodgers scheduled a 'B' game on the minor league side at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday morning against the Reds. Matt Magill, Steve Ames, Javy Guerra, and Stephen Fife will pitch, with catcher Matt Wallach. They will face a Cincinnati lineup that includes Miguel Olivo, Emmanuel Burris, and old friend Xavier Paul.
Jeff Francis starts for Colorado.
