GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The minor league spring training schedule gets underway on Friday, March 20, with Double-A and Triple-A teams from the Dodgers facing the Rangers on the back fields at Camelback Ranch.
The Class-A schedule starts two days later, on Sunday, March 22.
For the most part, both Class-A teams stick together, as do the Double-A and Triple-A teams, with one group on the road while the other is at home. The games will be held on the back fields at Camelback Ranch, and are often used to get players from the major league side either more plate appearances or more innings in a controlled environment.
But it's also a way to get up close and watch several prospects. There are two games at once and at Camelback Ranch the fields are right next to each other so it is relatively easy to keep track of two games at once.
Minor league camp opens in full on Saturday, six days before games begin.
Here is the schedule of minor league games, which runs for 16 days.
