We are a little more than a week into spring training, and still four weeks away from opening day. Here is a look at the Dodgers' schedule ahead for their second full week of Cactus League play, which includes one of two full off days in camp.
The Dodgers are off on Thursday this week, one of two off days on their Cactus League schedule, along with Wednesday, March 22.
Monday sees the Dodgers make their third trip to Salt River Fields in a week, and their final trip there this spring, taking on the Rockies. Adrian Gonzalez, who will leave to join Mexico for the World Baseball Classic early this week, is expected to make his spring debut on Monday with a pair of plate appearances as the designated hitter.
The Dodgers are back at Camelback Ranch on Tuesday to battle the Giants for the second and final time this spring. Corey Seager could be back in the lineup by then after nursing a sore back.
The week ends with a pair of games on Sunday, the only day-night split squad for the Dodgers this spring. Daylight savings time starts on Sunday, which the state of Arizona does not observe, so Cactus League games will no longer be an hour ahead of Los Angeles; the day games will start at 1 p.m. PT instead of noon.
There is no local television broadcast until the weekend, when three games Friday through Sunday are on SportsNet LA. Saturday’s game against the Angels will also be televised by Fox Sports West.
Tuesday’s game against the Giants will be broadcast on radio, one of three games on 570 AM this week.
Here is the schedule for the upcoming week for the Dodgers:
Monday: at Rockies, 12:10 p.m. PT
Tuesday: vs. Giants, 12:05 p.m. (570 AM)
Wednesday: at Brewers, 12:05 p.m.
Thursday: OFF DAY
Friday: vs. Rangers, 6:05 p.m. (SportsNet LA, 570 AM)
Saturday: vs. Angels, 12:05 p.m. (SportsNet LA, Fox Sports West, 1010 KTNQ)
Sunday: at Royals, 1:05 p.m.
vs. White Sox, 7:05 p.m. (SportsNet LA, 570 AM, 1010 KTNQ)
