The Dodgers make their first trip to Phoenix this weekend for a three-game series against the Diamondbacks. Here is a look at the probable pitchers and the schedule for the games at Chase Field.
Friday, 6:40 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)
Alex Wood is back in the rotation, with five days rest after throwing 3⅓ scoreless, hitless innings in relief against these same Diamondbacks. Taijuan Walker shut the Dodgers down for five innings on Easter, allowing one run while striking out seven with just one walk.
Saturday, 5:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
Kenta Maeda flipped spots in the rotation, and makes this start on a full six days rest. With at least six days of rest in 2016, Maeda had a 4.23 ERA in five starts. Robbie Ray struck out 10 Dodgers last Monday, including six in a row at one point, and also walked four in a no-decision.
Sunday, 1:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA, KTLA)
Brandon McCarthy makes his second start at Chase Field since leaving the Diamondbacks in 2014. Last July 16, the right-hander struck out eight in six scoreless frames in a no-decision. The Dodgers get their first 2017 look at Shelby Miller in the series finale. He pitched into the eighth inning on Tuesday in a win at San Diego, allowing only one run.
The Dodgers and Diamondbacks split 10 games in Arizona in 2016.
