Tyler Glasnow & Yoshinobu Yamamoto have combined for 28 strikeouts

Glasnow will get the ball for the Dodgers' first game of the season and be followed by Yamamoto. If their spring training stats are any indication of what fans can expect in 2024, there's going to be a steady breeze in Dodger Stadium due to the number of whiffs from opposing batters.

Glasnow and Yamamoto have combined for 28 strikeouts in just under 20 innings pitched between the two of them. Both pitchers have racked up 14 Ks this spring. Yamamoto's 8.38 ERA and 1.97 WIHP are a bit unsightly, but Dodgers fans have seen that the right-hander's stuff plays against major league hitting.

The tandem of Glasnow and Yamamoto will be the Dodgers' 1-2 punch to begin the season, and likely remain that way throughout 2024 campaign. LA has several starters set to begin the year on the IL, but even when those injured pitchers return, the Dodgers' dynamic duo still represent the best hurlers on the ball club.

No Dodgers starting pitcher has allowed a home run this spring

Both Glasnow and Yamamoto can take a bow, because they're part of this outstanding statistic as well. None of the five players selected for the Dodgers Opening Day rotation have allowed a ball to leave the yard this spring.

In fact, as a team, Los Angeles has only allowed nine homers during Cactus League play and no pitcher has allowed more than one round-tripper. Michael Grove, who missed out on a rotation spot thanks to the stellar play of Gavin Stone, was the only potential starter to allow a big fly this spring.
