  • HEAD EAST YOUNG MEN: On Saturday, two squads of Los Angeles Dodgers will head east on the I-10, with one team playing the Giants in Scottsdale and the other taking on the Angels in Tempe. In Scottsdale, Dodger right-handed hurler Tim Redding will get the start and is scheduled to be followed by RHP Carlos Monasterios, RHP Oscar Villarreal, RHP Jon Huber and LHP Wilkin De La Rosa. Over in Tempe, RHP Hiroki Kuroda will make his first start of the Spring and is scheduled to be followed by RHP Rubby De La Rosa, LHP Scott Elbert, RHP Lance Cormier, RHP Roman Colon and RHP Luis Vasquez.
  • THE BIG BOARD: This morning, Baseball America released its 22nd annual Top 100 Prospects list and three Dodger minor leaguers were included in the rankings. Dee Gordon checked in at No. 26 overall while Zach Lee (No. 89) and Rubby De La Rosa (No. 90) appeared back-to-back. Gordon and De La Rosa are both non-roster players this spring, participating in their first big league camp. Lee was the Dodgers first-round pick (28th overall) in the 2010 Draft.
