Thirty-five Spring Training games in 32 days. You asked for baseball — now you’re gonna get it. The only scheduled off day is March 24, and there are four split-squad days.

Here’s some pregame reading:

  • Minor-league pitchers Jeremy Horst, Jeremy Kehrt and Blake Smith have also suited up for today’s game.
  • David Huff (home) and Zach Lee (road) will start the Dodgers’ split-squad games Friday.
  • Clayton Kershaw had a nice conversation with Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, comparing Kershaw’s experience as a teen sensation with the one Julio Urias is having.
  • Joc Pederson, Don Mattingly and Triple-A manager Damon Berryhill addressed concerns about Pederson’s strikeout rate in this article by Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles.
  • More players react to the Dodgers’ health-conscious menu in this piece by Bill Plunkett of the Register.
  • Did you prefer Adam Dunn or Juan Pierre as a ballplayer? Ben Lindbergh of Grantland offers an examination of this question with a twist.
