Dodgers: Top Three Pitchers to Keep an Eye on This Weekend
By Jacob Rudner
It’s time for Dodgers baseball. Spring games get underway this weekend with the Dodgers taking on the White Sox on Saturday and the Angels on Sunday.
However, different from years past, the Dodgers will not throw their best arms in their earliest games.
Dave Roberts said on a rainy Arizona Thursday morning that the team will go with a group of non-roster invitees on Saturday in the opener and Hyun-Jin Ryu followed by more minor leaguers on Sunday.
For some, this is upsetting. The best arms on the Dodgers will not get to see any action in the first weekend of the spring and after what feels like an eternal offseason, all fans want are their favorites.
But, look at this weekend as a different and perhaps even more exciting opportunity. The future of the Dodgers’ pitching staff will get to show what they are made of. This is, in my opinion, a great opportunity to see some young arms against some experienced bats.
Here are my top three pitchers to watch this weekend.
