Today’s lineups, and Hyun-Jin Ryu returns to the mound.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Dodgers are playing two games today. One is a regularly-scheduled Cactus League game against the Milwaukee Brewers at Camelback Ranch (lineup on the left). The other is a “B” game against the Chicago White Sox (lineup on the right). You might have heard of Chicago’s starting pitcher, a left-hander named Chris Sale:

You have just as good a chance of catching the “B” game on TV as the “A” game.

Today’s going to be a busy today at the ranch for two more reasons. One, Hyun-Jin Ryu is throwing his first bullpen session since he was shut down earlier this month. No word yet on how many pitches he’ll be throwing, or how hard he’ll try to throw them, but it’s a positive step forward for the left-hander who hopes to return to game action in May.

It’s also the first day of minor league games at Camelback Ranch. I don’t have those lineups and won’t post them here, since there are going to be multiple games per day, some home and some away.

The Dodgers will need players to fill out those rosters, and Dave Roberts is expected to announce cuts from the major league camp soon. There were no empty lockers in the room this morning, so I have no names to report yet.

I wrote about some minor leaguers for today’s paper. The Dodgers convened their first-ever Leadership Council in January, and you can read about what they did here.
