GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Corey Seager is one of three Dodgers to play six games in six days so far in Cactus League play, and on Tuesday he gets to make it a lucky seven with his first start of spring, getting the call at shortstop against the Rockies at Camelback Ranch.

Seager is 3-for-8 (.375) with two doubles and a team-leading four walks in his six games to date, good for a .583 on-base percentage. The only Dodgers player with more than one walk so far in spring is Yasiel Puig, with two.

Seager will back Clayton Kershaw, who is making his second start of the spring. Kershaw will likely pitch three innings today.

Eddie Butler, who made his major league debut against the Dodgers last June, starts for the Rockies.

Adrian Gonzalez gets the start at designated hitter against Colorado, allowing Justin Turner some time at first base. Turner started two games at first base for the Dodgers in 2014.

Enrique Hernandez is expected to play all over for the Dodgers, and Tuesday sees him at a fourth different position this spring. Hernandez has played second base, shortstop and third base so far this spring, but today starts in center field, batting ninth.

Scheduled Dodgers reserves today include Scott Schebler in right field, Darnell Sweeney in center, Alex Guerrero at third base, O`Koyea Dickson at first base, and Austin Barnes behind the plate.

Other Dodgers scheduled to pitch Tuesday after Kershaw include Joe Wieland, Paco Rodriguez, Dustin McGowan, Pedro Baez and David Aardsma, all making their second appearance of the Cactus League.

Today's television broadcast on SportsNet LA will feature Rick Monday on play-by-play with Kevin Kennedy as analyst.
