This is turning out to be a busy Monday.
The Dodgers just announced their home/away schedule for Spring Training at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, AZ. Since the team is starting the season early with a couple of games against the Diamondbacks in Sydney, Australia in late March, the Dodgers will only be playing 21 games in Arizona. They then finish up Spring Training with the annual freeway series match up against the Angels in Southern California.
Per a Dodgers press release:
The Dodgers will play a total of 24 Cactus League games this spring, in addition to an exhibition game against Team Australia in Sydney, Australia on Friday, March 21, the day before Los Angeles faces the Arizona Diamondbacks in MLB's Opening Series on March 22-23 at the historic Sydney Cricket Ground.Below is a schedule.

The Dodgers play 13 games at Camelback Ranch - Glendale, including 12 home dates. The club has at least one home game during each of the four Cactus League weekends, providing fans ample opportunity to make the five-hour drive or one-hour flight to the desert. Camelback Ranch features a state-of-the-art ballpark, six practice fields on the Dodgers side, including a replica Dodger Stadium field, walking trails, an orange grove and a two-acre lake.
After returning from Australia, the club will conclude their exhibition schedule with three games against the Angels March 27-29, including a pair of 7:10 p.m. games on March 27-28 at Dodger Stadium.
