Two teams who will both be looking for season opening sweeps on Wednesday will meet Thursday as the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants get set for battle.
Both teams have high hopes in the NL West this season, as they are expected to compete for both the Wild Card an Division crown.
San Francisco Giants
San Francisco has gotten a glimpse of how deep their team is. In the season opener, Madison Bumgarner was stellar while the offense had no problem scoring. San Francisco put up a 12 spot in 12-3 win over the Brewers on Opening Day. A night later, it was Johnny Cueto who looked like he return to old form as he shut down the Brewers in a 2-1 win.
They’ll send out Jake Peavy for this one, who is looking to stay consistently healthy throughout the season. His health has been a major concern as he continues to always find himself on the DL.
Last season he started just 19 games, but did finish 8-6. His ERA was inflated a bit at 3.58. If he cant get things going at the bottom of the rotation like he’s been capable of doing in the past, this Giants rotation could be the deadliest one in the NL.
The Dodgers have had zero problems with Milwaukee to open the season. They have put in back to back shutout performances, putting up a 15 spot offensively in game 1 and following that up with a 3 spot in 2.
While it’s obviously a small sample size, the solid start is quite encouraging given the circumstances. Los Angeles has 10 guys currently on the DL and Scott Kazmir, their #2, was almost one of them. He had horrible spring, but pitched a gem of a game in Tuesday’s win.
Trying to follow up the performances, the Dodgers will go with LH Alex Wood here. Wood did experience some forearm stiffness a few weeks back, but turned in 3.0 solid innings of work to earn his spot. With Wood being in the 4 spot and a lefty, it will cause teams to have to shift their lineups more often with him and Kazmir going every other day when the rotation is at the top.
