GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Vin Scully unofficially begins his unprecedented 66th season of calling Dodgers games when he broadcasts Friday night's game against the Giants at Camelback Ranch.

Scully's only game this spring from Arizona will be the most like a normal Scully telecast during the Cactus League, with the first three innings of Scully's call simulcast on both SportsNet LA and AM 570 radio. Charley Steiner and Rick Monday will call the remainder of the game on radio starting with the fourth inning.

During Scully's tenure with the Dodgers, there have been 917 different players to play in at least one game for the team. Sid Bream and Stan Wall are the only ones to have played exactly 66 games for the Dodgers during that span.

Once the regular season starts, that 917 number will grow, with Jimmy Rollins, Howie Kendrick and others making their official Dodger debuts. Rollins and Kendrick are in the lineup on Friday night against the Giants, with a Dodgers lineup that looks a lot like an opening day lineup might look, especially should A.J. Ellis catch Clayton Kershaw.

Zack Greinke is on the hill Friday night, making his fourth Cactus League start.

Also scheduled to pitch for the Dodgers are Paco Rodriguez, Yimi Garcia, Mike Adams and David Aardsma.

Chris Heston starts for the Giants, with Madison Bumgarner pitching on the minor league side for the Giants, avoiding giving the Dodgers a free look at the San Francisco ace.

Here is the Dodgers' lineup for Friday night, with the Giants' to follow later:

Rollins SS
Puig RF
Gonzalez 1B
Kendrick 2B
Crawford LF
Uribe 3B
Pederson CF
Ellis C
Greinke P
