GLENDALE, Ariz. -- After 12 days of workouts, including six days of full squad workouts, the Dodgers get their spring training game schedule started on Wednesday afternoon against the White Sox at Camelback Ranch. This marks a home game for the Dodgers, followed by a return engagement and a Chicago home game on Thursday.
Erik Bedard gets the start for the Dodgers in the opener, and will be followed on the mound by Carlos Frias, Sergio Santos, Adam Liberatore, Juan Nicasio and Josh Ravin.
The Dodgers also brought over three pitchers from the minor league side to suit up if needed - left-hander Jeremy Horst (wearing No. 97), right-hander Jeremy Kehrt (87) and former outfielder turned right-hander Blake Smith (91).
Jose Quintana starts for the White Sox, with former Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny among those scheduled to follow on the mound for Chicago. Other White Sox pitchers at the ready are Nolan Sanburn, Tyler Danish, Eric Surkamp, Zach Putnam, Joe Savery, Logan Kensing and Arcenio Leon.
The SportsNet LA television broadcast for the spring opener will be a simulcast of the radio call, with Charley Steiner on play-by-play and Rick Monday as analyst. The game will also be broadcast in Spanish on KTNQ 1020 radio, with Jaime Jarrin and Jorge Jarrin on the call.
Hyun-jin Ryu threw a bullpen session earlier Wednesday. Manager Don Mattingly said the next step for Ryu will likely be pitching to live hitters before pitching in a game.
Brett Anderson threw live batting practice to Matt Carson and Scott Schebler earlier, his first time throwing to hitters since back surgery last August. Anderson will start in the rotation after Brandon McCarthy, who threw live BP on Tuesday. The only question is when will Zack Greinke slot in. We hope to have the weekend rotation for you by the end of today.
Clayton Kershaw starts Thursday for the Dodgers, followed by David Huff here against the Mariners on Friday, while Zach Lee starts on the road against the Brewers in Maryvale. Julio Urias is also scheduled to pitch in the home game on Friday.
