ANAHEIM — Dan Haren will face Tyler Skaggs today in the Dodgers’ final exhibition game before the regular season resumes Sunday in San Diego.

Because Sunday’s game is just down the Interstate 5, the Dodgers’ starters will catch a bus in the middle of the game to the team hotel in San Diego. The rest of the team will depart after the game. We already have a firm idea of who will be on the 25-man roster that is due to the league tomorrow.

Several minor-league players are uniform for the Dodgers today: RHP Matt Magill (#36), OF Jamie Romak (#95), OF Scott Schebler (#92), INF Clint Robinson (#73), INF Brendan Harris (#35), RHP Pedro Baez (#62), C Tim Federowicz (#26), RHP Sam Demel (#38), RHP Zach Lee (#64), RHP Red Patterson (#78), C Jose Capellan (96), INF Miguel Rojas (#72), INF Corey Seager (#94), INF Darnell Sweeney (#87), OF Joc Pederson (#65), OF Trayvon Robinson (#90) and LHP Tom Windle (#97).

Magill will pitch after starter Dan Haren, who isn’t expected to throw more than an inning or two. Brandon League will also throw an inning in relief, his first against a major-league team after some occasionally rocky minor-league outings in spring training. League also pitched in a Dodgers intrasquad game Wednesday.

Here are the lineups for both teams:

Dodgers:

Yasiel Puig RF
Carl Crawford DH
Hanley Ramirez SS
Adrian Gonzalez 1B
Scott Van Slyke LF
Juan Uribe 3B
Andre Ethier CF
Justin Turner 2B
A.J. Ellis C
Dan Haren RHP

Angels:

Kole Calhoun RF
Mike Trout CF
Albert Pujols 1B
Josh Hamilton LF
David Freese 3B
Raul Ibanez DH
Howie Kendrick 2B
Chris Iannetta C
Erick Aybar SS
Tyler Skaggs LHP
