Spring training 2013: Dodgers vs. Indians starting lineups

Matt Kemp plays his second game of the spring, and all four remaining Dodgers headed to the World Baseball Classic on Monday are in the lineup or scheduled to pitch on Sunday.

The Dodgers host the Indians at Camelback Ranch, though thoughts turned to two things on Sunday morning in the Dodgers clubhouse.

First, the Dodgers are holding their annual "Dodgers Idol" karaoke competition, in which all first year players in camp must sing and be judged in front of all the players and coaches. The person setting up the sound system in the clubhouse performed a sound check that consisted of singing the entire 'Me & Bobby McGee' by Janis Joplin

The winner of Dodgers Idol in 2012 was left-hander Scott Rice, who nearly won the final spot in the bullpen, but lost out in the final round of roster cuts to Josh Lindblom.

The other thought is Monday's looming off day, though personally that might be even more exciting to the writers than the team. Aaron Harang will throw on his scheduled turn on Monday, in a simulated game against minor leaguers, but otherwise tomorrow is a quiet day in major league camp for the Dodgers.

But before we get to Monday, there is a game to play Sunday, and that game includes Matt Kemp returning to the lineup as the designated hitter in his second game of the spring. Here are the starting lineups against the Indians:


Bourn CF
Carrera RF
Giambi DH
Gomes C
McDade 1B
Phelps 2B
Diaz SS
Fedroff LF
Hernandez 3B

Right-handed pitcher Corey Kluber starts for Cleveland.


Schumaker RF
Ellis 2B
Kemp DH
Gonzalez 1B
Hairston LF
Cruz 3B
Ellis C
Punto SS
Amezaga CF

Adrian Gonzalez, Luis Cruz, and Javy Guerra (scheduled to pitch an inning) report to Camleback Ranch on Monday, but for Team Mexico, training in Glendale for the World Baseball Classic. Nick Punto reports to Team Italy at Papago Park in Phoenix on Monday. All four players are playing Sunday.

Josh Beckett gets the start for the Dodgers. Yasiel Puig, the only Dodger to play a game every day of spring so far, is listed on the "No go" section of Sunday's schedule, which means he won't be available for the game but will likely be doing side work in the batting cages after the morning workouts.

Scheduled reserves for the Dodgers on Sunday include Alex Castellanos (RF), Omar Luna (2B), Dallas McPherson (1B), Nick Evans (LF), Elian Herrera (3B), Wilkin Castillo (C), Justin Sellers (SS), and Jeremy Moore (CF).
