The Dodgers take on their Camelback Ranch co-tenants Saturday night as they battle the White Sox. Carl Crawford makes his return to the field, playing left field for the first time in a game in 216 days.

Crawford has played four Cactus League games as a designated hitter so far this spring, and has hit .231 (three singles in 13 at-bats) with a walk. He was also successful in his only stolen base attempt.

Here are Saturday night's starting lineups:

White Sox

Per Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune.

DeAza CF
Keppinger 3B
Rios RF
Dunn 1B
Flowers C
Sanchez SS
Wise LF
Tolleson 2B
Peavy P

Dodgers

Crawford LF
Ellis 2B
Kemp CF
Gonzalez 1B
Ethier RF
Cruz SS
Uribe 3B
Ellis C
Ryu P

Mattingly said on Friday that he would start to play his regular lineup more often during the final week of spring, and this looks pretty much like the opening day starting eight, with perhaps third base still up in the air.

Also scheduled to pitch for the Dodgers after Ryu are Brandon League, J.P. Howell, Paco Rodriguez, and Mark Lowe.
