Dodgers notes: Julio Urias, Zach Lee, Justin Turner, Howie Kendrick, Yasmani Grandal

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

PHOENIX -- The Dodgers are back at Camelback Ranch for a Friday game against the Angels, with a pair of notable pitchers on the mound. Zach Lee, with a legitimate shot at making at least one major league start in April, makes his second Cactus League start on Friday, and will be followed by super prospect Julio Urias.

Urias, who was pushed back a few days last week with groin soreness, will make his 2016 Cactus League debut and is expected to pitch two innings.

The Dodgers have a busy list of pitchers slated to pitch in Friday's game after Lee and Urias, with Pedro Baez, Louis Coleman, J.P. Howell, Kenley Jansen, Jacob Rhame and Ian Thomas all at the ready. Either some of those pitchers will be working shorter outings today, or could be pushed back to Saturday, when the Dodgers play a pair of split-squad games.

Speaking of that split squad on Saturday, the Dodgers will start Alex Wood at Camelback Ranch against the Cubs, a 6:05 p.m. PT start, then start Brandon Beachy in Peoria against the Mariners, a 6:40 p.m. start.

Nick Tropeano pitches for the Angels on Friday, who seemed to have stretched the limits of sending a representative major league roster to today's game.

Up from the minor league side for the Dodgers on Friday are right-handed pitchers Rob Rogers (No. 88) and Scott Griggs (90), and left-handed pitcher Grant Dayton.

The Dodgers this week moved back their Monday, May 30 game against the Cubs in Chicago from 1 p.m. PT to 2 p.m., giving them an extra hour after playing the Mets in New York the previous night on ESPN 'Sunday Night Baseball.'

Catching up on some injured Dodgers, Alex Guerrero is still in limbo while it looks like Monday is the rough target date for Justin Turner, Howie Kendrick and Yasmani Grandal.

Friday's game will be televised by Fox Sports West, the Angels broadcast, with the only Dodgers broadcast available on radio.
