The Dodgers revealed their 2016 Cactus League schedule today, beginning with a March 3 game against the Chicago White Sox at Camelback Ranch. The full schedule is as follows:
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Zack Greinke had his share of ups and downs Wednesday.
That was the point, really. Greinke needed to stretch his arm up to regular-season standards and he did, throwing 85 pitches over seven innings of a Single-A intrasquad game. The right-hander allowed five hits, including two home runs, walked none and struck out nine.
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Here’s a very brief lesson in how statistics, especially at baseball’s lower minor-league levels, can sometimes lie.
McGowan had already been informed that he wasn’t going to be on the club’s Opening Day roster. He signed a one-year contract early in camp and was due a retention bonus if the Dodgers decided to keep him on the roster into the regular season.
Some interesting lineup cards today as the Dodgers and Royals meet in the Cactus League finale for both teams. To the victor goes second place in the Cactus League standings. To the loser, third place.
Really, everyone wins. We all get to go home once the game is over.
Zack Greinke is starting a minor-league game at Camelback Ranch that begins at 10 a.m.
Here are the lineups for the 12 p.m. game at Surprise Stadium:
