It’s the Dodgers @ Diamondbacks today (6:30PM PT, TV: SPNLA) in the first of a three-day road trip. What were the schedulers thinking? The Dodgers play three games in Phoenix and then travel right back to LA to play the Mariners starting Monday.
The Dodgers send lefthanded Brett Anderson to the hill for his debut in their uniform. It will be his first regular-season game since last August 5 for the Rockies. That night he threw three innings, came out of the game and underwent back surgery a week later. He’s obviously an unknown quantity and will be for at least his first four or five starts. Anderson’s career WHIP is 1.285.
His opponent will be the right-handed Chase Anderson, who is coming off his first season in the big leagues, one in which he was 9-7 with a 4.01 ERA over 114 innings and a WHIP of 1.37.
Anybody betting A-Gon keeps his HR streak alive?
