Rain Pushes Back Kershaw
Rain washed out the Dodgers’ exhibition game against the Cubs Sunday, so scheduled starter Clayton Kershaw instead will follow starter Chad Billingsley to the mound Monday against the Giants in Scottsdale. After the two starters, Rule 5 pick Carlos Monasterios is likely to pitch. Also on the trip will be Josh Towers, Jon Link, Juan Perez and Francisco Felix.
The Dodgers also have scheduled a morning “B” game against the White Sox to pick up some of the innings lost Sunday. Among the pitchers in that game will be Scott Elbert, Josh Lindblom, Ramon Troncoso, Travis Schlichting, Kenley Jansen, Javy Guerra and Rule 5 pick Armando Zerpa. — Ken Gurnick
