The Dodgers will play their second spring training game today as they host the Los Angeles Angels at noon. The Angels will be playing split squad games today so that makes their visiting team lineup even less recognizable.

In other news, manager Dave Roberts gave an update on Clayton Kershaw.
Kershaw is on anti-inflammatory medication, Roberts said. He said Kershaw’s efforts to increase his velocity might have contributed to his not feeling right this spring.— Pedro Moura (@pedromoura) February 24, 2019
Roberts said Kershaw is now “encouraged,” after being discouraged with last Wednesday’s bullpen session.— Ken Gurnick (@kengurnick) February 24, 2019
It was also reported that Kershaw did not have an MRI taken and that the team still expects him to be their Opening Day starter.
Cody Bellinger is back at camp after being held out with a sore back.
Cody Bellinger is back in action today, Dave Roberts said, after missing workout yesterday with a sore back. Could play Tuesday.— Ken Gurnick (@kengurnick) February 24, 2019
Bellinger may need a new cap.
