Walker Buehler starts opening day for OKC

MLB: Spring Training-Los Angeles Dodgers at Arizona Diamondbacks Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

LOS ANGELES — Oklahoma City plays in the first minor league game of the season, a 1 p.m. PT game at Iowa (Cubs) on Thursday, the only game in that time slot. That gives Dodgers top pitching prospect Walker Buehler the stage to himself, starting opening day in Triple-A.

Buehler is followed in the OKC rotation by Manny Banuelos, Brock Stewart and Guillermo Moscosco.

Zach Neal was originally in the Oklahoma City rotation but was called up to the Dodgers on Tuesday with Josh Fields on paternity leave.

Andrew Toles starts the season in Triple-A, who was surprised by the new minor league rule that calls for a runner to be placed at second base to start each extra inning this season.

Other Dodgers on the 40-man roster starting off in Oklahoma City are southpaw relievers Adam Liberatore and Edward Paredes, infielders Rob Segedin, Tim Locastro and Breyvic Valera, and outfielder Alex Verdugo.

Here is a shot of Valera in a Dodgers uniform, a day after he was acquired from the Cardinals.

All three catchers in Triple-A signed with the Dodgers very recently, with Rocky Gale and Alex Burg joining in February and Cael Brockmeyer inking a deal last Thursday.

Corner infielder Edwin Rios and pitcher Yaisel Sierra are still in extended spring training building up their workload.
