Reigning National League Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw opposes Brandon McCarthy when these teams go head-to-head this afternoon in Scottsdale. Kershaw went 16-9 with a league-leading 1.83 ERA last season for Los Angeles while McCarthy pitched to a 5-11 record with a 4.53 ERA in Arizona.
The Dodgers will be without regulars A.J. Ellis, Andre Ethier, Adrian Gonzalez and Hanley Ramirez as they didn't make the trip, but they are expected to have their full roster when the teams play again against each other on Thursday.
The Dodgers will have Yasiel Puig in the outfield along with Carl Crawford, as Puig looks to build off of an exciting rookie season that saw him hit .319 with 19 homers and 42 RBIs while helping ignite the Dodgers to their first NL West crown since 2009.
Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who set career highs by launching 36 homers and adding 125 RBI last year will look to lead the team this afternoon. Goldschmidt hit .302 with career-highs in slugging (.551) and OPS (.952) last season, while leading the NL in RBIs and tying for first in the league in homers.
The starters likely won't be in very long since it's the first game of the spring, but when Arizona and Los Angeles take the field today the teams will be that much closer to opening day.
