There is just one spring training game left tonight for the Dodgers and then they will start the regular season on Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

The Dodgers are just about done with their spring training schedule with the last game being played tonight at Dodger Stadium.  Then the team will take a day off and pick things back up on Thursday to open the season against the Arizona Diamondbacks.  While spring training can be boring for a team as accomplished as the Dodgers, it was necessary this time around.

Not only did the spring give the Dodgers time to recover from two long seasons, but it also allowed injured players such as Rich Hill and Clayton Kershaw, more time to heal up to miss as little regular season time as possible.  Here are the three biggest takeaways that I noticed from watching the Dodgers this spring.
