Dodgers vs. Brewers starting lineups: Carl Crawford returns

Camelback Ranch

GLENDALE -- The Dodgers have a scheduled game on Saturday afternoon in Maryvale against the Brewers, but rain threatens to potentially change those plans. The Dodgers have moved their morning workouts mostly under the roof of the batting cages.

But if the game gets underway, Dan Haren will start for the Dodgers against Kyle Lohse of Milwaukee. Manager Don Mattingly said Haren would pitch a simulated game somewhere if the Dodgers get rained out, just to remain on schedule.

"He wants to throw today. He likes his schedule right now," Mattingly said. "He'd do enough throwing today to simulate that game today."

Carl Crawford is back in the lineup after missing two days with tightness in his right quad. Crawford won't play the field though, as he is the designated hitter.

One day after starting in left field, utility man Chone Figgins starts in center field for the Dodgers, batting second. Regulars Hanley Ramirez, Andre Ethier and Adrian Gonzalez won't make the trip to Maryvale.

Old friend Elian Herrera is starting at shortstop for the Brewers, batting ninth.

Scheduled reserves for the Dodgers include Joc Pederson in center field, Nick Buss in right field, Clint Robinson at first base, Tim Federowicz at catcher, Justin Turner at second base and Miguel Rojas at shortstop.

Scheduled to pitch after Haren for the Dodgers are Brandon league, Paco Rodriguez, Chris Reed, Javy Guerra and Jose Dominguez.

Here's an update, about 3½ hours before game time:
