Today is must-see TV, as the Dodgers battle the Rangers for the second straight day. This time the Dodgers are at home, and the game at Camelback Ranch will be televised on Prime Ticket and MLB Network. Clayton Kershaw will start for the Dodgers, making his fourth start of the spring, and Hong-Chih Kuo is scheduled to make his second Cactus League appearance on the mound as well.
Before the game today, the Dodgers made another round of cuts, optioning Jon Link and Russ Mitchell, and reassigning Roman Colon and JD Closser to minor league camp. There are 44 players remaining in major league camp: 21 pitchers and 23 position players.
In addition to Kershaw and Kuo, Blake Hawksworth, Ron Mahay, Oscar Villarreal, Travis Schlichting, and Ramon Troncoso are listed as scheduled pitchers for the Dodgers today. But if they all pitch that would be an awfully short outing for Kershaw.
Derek Holland will start on the mound for the Rangers, and be followed by Alexi Ogando, Cody Eppley, and Zach Jackson.
Game Time: 1:05 p.m. PST
TV: Prime Ticket, MLB Network (Joe Block and Josh Suchon on the call)
