Dodgers set weekend starting rotation

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers have set their pitching rotation through the weekend, which doesn't yet include Zack Greinke or Hyun-jin Ryu throwing in any spring training games. Both are recovering from minor setbacks and will likely throw live batting practice to hitters before pitching in any spring games.

Mike Bolsinger will get the start for the Dodgers on Saturday against the Indians in Goodyear, followed by Brandon McCarthy on Sunday at home against the Brewers, then Brett Anderson on Monday in Scottsdale against the Giants.

The Dodgers have a split squad on Friday, with David Huff starting at home against the Mariners, and Zach Lee starting in Maryvale against the Brewers.

Ryu threw a bullpen session on Wednesday morning and came out of it fine, his second bullpen session since missing a few days with back spasms last week. Greinke has thrown three bullpen sessions since getting a lubricating injection in his right elbow at the start of camp, called planned maintenance by the club.

Clayton Kershaw threw live batting practice on Saturday, and will start for the Dodgers on Thursday. McCarthy threw live BP on Tuesday and will start Saturday, while Anderson threw to hitters today, and will start Monday. This gives us the timetable to see when Greinke and Ryu might join the rotation, depending on when they face live hitters, something that seems likely during this weekend.
