Spring training 2013: Dodgers vs. Rangers starting lineups

USA TODAY Sports

Clayton Kershaw makes his fifth start of the spring on Saturday as the Dodgers make their first trip of the year to Surprise to play the Rangers.

The Dodgers travel to Surprise on Saturday to battle the Rangers, as Clayton Kershaw makes his fifth start of the spring. With most regulars on a two-on, one-off schedule and with Saturday the middle day between a pair of split-squad days, the lineup against the Rangers features no projected starters.

But there are at least three and potentially five players who might make the opening day roster, depending on how Alex Castellanos and Alfredo Amezaga fit in the various roster permutations possible for the Dodgers. But expect the roster to be trimmed by Sunday from the current 48 players in big league camp.

"I'd really like to get camp cut down. I'd really like to get down closer to our team. It's just that time," manager Don Mattingly said Friday night. "We're within two weeks, you'd kind of like to have your guys in the clubhouse. It's getting there."

Here are Saturday's lineups:

Dodgers

Amezaga CF
Punto 3B
Hairston 1B
Puig RF
Schumaker 2B
Castellanos LF
Wallach C
Gordon SS
Kershaw P

Also scheduled to make the trip for the Dodgers are minor leaguers Brian Cavazos-Galvez, Scott Van Slyke, Rusty Ryal, Brian Barden, Miguel Rojas, Omar Luna, Matt Angle, and Nick Evans.
