Carl Crawford told reporters this morning that the bruise on his right shin isn’t serious. Crawford fouled a ball off the shin yesterday in Goodyear, finished the at-bat, and exited the game afterward. He isn’t in the lineup today against the Brewers, but he wasn’t scheduled to be in the lineup anyway.
Speaking of lineups for the 1 p.m. game at Camelback Ranch, here they are:
The Dodgers are dividing their roster today for the first of four split-squad days this spring. Both games start at noon. Don Mattingly is managing the home game against Seattle while bench coach Tim Wallach will serve as the manager against Milwaukee in Maryvale.
Note that the game against the Mariners will be broadcast live on SportsNet LA, while the game against the Brewers will be tape-delayed on MLB Network. This is one of six spring games that won’t be blacked out in SportsNet LA markets.
Here are the lineups for both games:

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Right-hander Zach Lee will make his Cactus League debut against the Milwaukee Brewers in Maryvale, while left-hander David Huff will start the Dodgers’ other split-squad game at home against the Seattle Mariners, manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday.
Both games begin at noon Pacific Time.
Uber-prospect Julio Urias is scheduled to pitch in relief of Huff at Camelback Ranch, though Mattingly said Wednesday “that could be changed.” Mattingly will manage the game at Camelback Ranch.
Mattingly said tentatively that Brandon McCarthy will start Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Indians in Goodyear.
For now, the Dodgers starters will get only “four innings, a couple at-bats.” So if you’re coming to any of these games and want to watch someone whose name you’ll recognize, arrive early.
