Dodgers (13-13) @ Brewers (13-9), 1:05pm
The Dodgers and Brewers face off today in Maryvale. Manny Ramirez returns to the field for the first time since tweaking his hamstring almost two weeks ago, so says Ramona Shelburne of the Daily News. Ryan Braun also makes his return, joining the Brewers after playing for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic.
Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reported Chad Billingsley -- recovering from a groin strain -- is tentatively scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday and start Sunday.
Ken Gurnick reported fellow 5th starter candidates Eric Stults and Claudio Vargas will pitch for the Dodgers today. Gurnick adds that Stults will need "a strong outing to stay alive in the fifth-starter competition."
