Pitchers Face Hitters

For the first time this Spring, Dodgers pitchers threw live batting practice Saturday. Among those on the mound were Chad Billingsley and fifth-starter contenders Eric Milton, Shawn Estes, Jeff Weaver, Claudio Vargas and Ramon Troncoso.

Manager Joe Torre said Cory Wade, who underwent a cortisone injection earlier in the week for shoulder irritation, has had his return to throwing delayed a day until Monday. Yhency Brazoban also might resume throwing then. Travis Schlichting still is bothered by lower back stiffness. — Ken Gurnick
