Rehabbing Muncy saw action at the plate Tuesday night

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers-Workouts Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s get back in the habit of watching some games together, shall we?

The Dodgers have four more intrasquad games on the docket, through Friday, then will host three exhibition games against other teams at Dodger Stadium beginning Sunday. First up in the exhibition slate is the Diamondbacks on Sunday (6:10 p.m. PT) and Monday (6:40 p.m.), followed by the Angels on Tuesday (6:40 p.m.).

But first we have the Dodgers vs. the Dodgers on this Tuesday night. The pitchers slated to work this one include six on the 40-man roster who could conceivably pitch in the Dodgers bullpen this season.

Still no Max Muncy in this one, nursing his left ring finger that was hit by a pitch on July 5. He’s taken batting practice but hasn’t yet taken ground balls in the field.

“He’s kind of in rehab mode still,” manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday. “I said it the other day, I expect him to be our first baseman when the season starts, and I still stand by that.”

SportsNet LA will begin its television broadcast of this intrasquad game at 6:30 p.m., with first pitch slated for roughly 10 minutes later. The Dodgers will also stream the game on their Twitter and Facebook feeds.
