GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers will send the bulk of its everyday lineup on the road on Saturday to face reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber and the Indians.

Six out of eight of the likely opening day starters make the trip to Goodyear on Saturday, though it could be five or seven, depending on your thoughts on Yasmani Grandal and Andre Ethier.

Ethier played center field and right field in his two previous starts, and gets the nod at designated hitter today. Scott Schebler, who doubled twice on Friday, starts in right field, with Darnell Sweeney, who homered Friday, starts in center.

Alex Guerrero is scheduled to play his fourth straight day. After his 5-for-7 start at the plate, Guerrero will play left field in reserve today after playing third base or designated hitter in his previous three contests.

Other planned Dodgers reserves include Corey Seager at shortstop, Kyle Jensen at first base, Austin Barnes at catcher, Erisbel Arruebarrena at second base, O`Koyea Dickson at designated hitter, Buck Britton at third base and Matt Carson in right field.

Mike Bolsinger gets the start for the Dodgers, and will be followed by Chad Gaudin. Those are the only two pitchers listed on the travel roster for today, so expect several minor league pitchers to make the bus trip and cover at least four innings in the game against Cleveland.
