The Week Ahead for the Dodgers

After the very successful trip down under to Australia we not need to go back to Spring Training games for the next few days.

Once the plane lands at LAX later today the Dodgers then play the cross-town rivals, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, in a three game series.

The first two games are to be played on the 27th and 28th of March at Dodger Stadium and the last of the series will be at the Angel Stadium the day after.

The next day is the Padres home opener and the first regular season back for the Dodgers after leaving Sydney with an 2-0 record, the best in baseball.

Opening Series

The starters are yet to be named but none of Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke or Hyun Jin Ryu will be pitching, as they are getting ready for opening day in San Diego.

It’ll be a three-day break in total from the Sunday game in Sydney but it is needed after the time zone difference from the convenient Down Under.

Yasiel Puig had a back strain after the second game in Sydney but he is expected to play in some if not all of the games against Anaheim.

Adrian Gonzalez had soreness after the game against Team Australia but is over that now after playing all 18 innings down under.

The second starting pitcher, Hyun Jin Ryu also has a slight niggle in his left leg but will be over that come the third or second game against the Padres, depending on where he pitches.
