The Dodgers get to play the Chicago White Sox a lot in March because they share the same training facility. Then, the teams never play each other again the rest of the year. It’s a strange rite of spring.

So, try to enjoy this last White Sox-Dodgers tilt. Joe Wieland starts for the Dodgers; it could be an important one as the Dodgers determine who will replace Hyun-Jin Ryu when his turn comes up in the rotation in April.

Here are the lineups for both teams:

Dodgers spring training 2015: Lineup vs. Chicago White Sox.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Right-hander Brad Penny is listed as the probable starter for the Chicago White Sox against his former club today (1 p.m., Camelback Ranch). The Dodgers’ lineup has a very Opening Day-ish look to it, with Clayton Kershaw on the mound and a couple interesting twists.

A left-handed swinging Yasmani Grandal bats cleanup after first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. A left-handed swinging Carl Crawford bats sixth. Andre Ethier starts in center field and bats eighth:

Jimmy Rollins SS
Yasiel Puig RF
Adrian Gonzalez 1B
Yasmani Grandal C
Howie Kendrick 2B
Carl Crawford LF
Juan Uribe 3B
Andre Ethier CF
Clayton Kershaw P

Bench: Joc Pederson, Chris Heisey, Scott Van Slyke, Alex Guerrero, Kike Hernandez, Darwin Barney, Justin Turner.
Bullpen: Adam Liberatore, Paco Rodriguez, Joel Peralta, Chris Hatcher, Pedro Baez.

It’s the fifth spring training start for Kershaw, who gets one more turn before Opening Day. Figure he’ll get something in the neighborhood of 95-100 pitches to work with. Could be less if he gets on a roll and Don Mattingly decides his bullpen needs some work.

Update (1 p.m.): The Dodgers have recalled minor-leaguers Buck Britton, Peter Lavin, Ali Solis, Spencer Navin, Jacob Scavuzzo and Nate Samson.

Here is the Chicago White Sox lineup:

Micah Johnson 2B
Alexei Ramirez SS
Jose Abreu 1B
Adam LaRoche DH
Avisail Garcia RF
Conor Gillaspie 3B
Tyler Flowers C
J.B. Shuck LF
Emilio Bonifacio CF

Brad Penny, RHP

Dodgers spring training 2015: Watch Kyle Jensen hit a two-run home run.

This might be the highlight of Kyle Jensen‘s spring … or he could go all George Lombard and hit several more before we leave Arizona.

Either way, here it is, from the eighth inning of today’s 6-1 win over the Chicago White Sox:
