Jack Taschner was designated for assignment to create roster room for Scott Podsednik, who starts in center field in his first game as a Dodger.
The Dodgers also announced that Chad Billingsley will start Saturday in San Francisco on three days rest. Billingsley has never had three days rest in between starts, but he did make a start once three days after a relief appearance. On April 8, 2008 in Arizona, three days after two scoreless innings in relief of Hiroki Kuroda, Billingsley lasted just 2 1/3 innings, allowing five runs.
Here are the lineups:
