Griff Erickson will make the trip to Southern California for the Freeway Series.

The Dodgers wrap up their Cactus League schedule with a pair of games against the division rival Arizona Diamondbacks, including Saturday's matchup of the first and fourth-place finishers in the National League Cy Young balloting last year, Clayton Kershaw and Ian Kennedy.

After a pair of weekend games with Arizona, the Dodgers head to Southern California to battle the Angels for three games in the Freeway Series. Making the trip from minor league camp for all three games are catchers Griff Erickson and Matt Wallach, infielders Jeff Baisley and Luis Nunez, outfielder Blake Smith, and pitchers Fernando Nieve, Will Savage, and Shawn Tolleson, the 2011 organizational minor league player of the year.

Pitchers Logan Bawcom and Angel Sanchez, and outfielder Jonathan Garcia will join the team in Los Angeles for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Other than things winding down in Arizona, there wasn't much news so far in camp today, other than perhaps Todd Coffey dying his hair black, in stark contrast to his red beard. Coffey said this is something he does at the end of every spring training, to "flip the switch" to the regular season.
