It is a rainy Friday in the greater Phoenix area, but the Dodgers do have two games on the schedule that may or may not get played. This is the first of two day-night split squad days for the Dodgers this spring, with a day trip to Scottsdale to face the Giants and a home game at night against the Reds at Camelback Ranch.
Here are the lineups for both games on Friday for the Dodgers:
vs. Giants (12:05 p.m. PT)
Ted Lilly is scheduled to start against San Francisco, and will be followed by Matt Magill. Expect several minor league pitchers on the trip to Scottsdale as well.
Barry Zito starts for the Giants.
Scheduled reserves for the Dodgers include eight players from the minor league side: O'Koyea Dickson (1B), Rafael Ynoa (2B), Matt Angle (CF), Rusty Ryal (RF), Nick Evans (3B), Chris Jacobs (DH), Joc Pederson (LF), Matt Wallach (C), and Miguel Rojas (SS).
vs. Reds (6:05 p.m. PT)
Van Slyke 1B
Chris Capuano is scheduled to start the night game, and will be followed on the mount by Shawn Tolleson, Paco Rodriguez, Matt Guerrier, and Steve Ames. It will be the first time back on the mound for Tolleson since his left knee scare on Tuesday in Peoria.
Bronson Arroyo stars for Cincinnati.
Scheduled reserves for the Dodgers in the night game also include eight players from the minor league side: Corey Seager (SS), Scott Schebler (LF), James Bladwin (CF), Jeremy Rathjen (RF), Tim Federowicz (C), Ryal (1B), Darnell Sweeney (2B), C.J. Retherford (3B), and Chris O'Brien (DH).
Again, keep in mind that there is a chance that neither game gets played on Friday. But if they do, here are the plans for the Dodgers.
