Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers have not made major changes with last year’s key players. In fact, they have added some top players to their advantage. Blake Treinen and Alex Wood are the new pitchers on the unit, while the big name behind the bats is Mookie Betts. Los Angeles Dodgers have top pitchers that can be the game-changers. The Dodgers have Ross Stripling, Julio Urias and three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw ready to give their best. The Dodgers proved their worth last year and they will not surrender easily this season. Kershaw will be sent to the mound as their starting pitcher in this game.

Players to watch: A.J. Pollock LF (GP 15 AB 45 R 4 H 8 2B 1 3B 0 HR 1 RBI 6 TB 12 BB 1 SO 14 SB 0 AVG 0.178 OBP 0.196 SLG 0.267 OPS 0.462), E. Hernandez LF GP (14 AB 38 R 7 H 11 2B 3 3B 0 HR 3 RBI 11 TB 23 BB 2 SO 10 SB 0 AVG 0.289 OBP 0.325 SLG 0.605 OPS 0.93).

San Francisco Giants

San Francisco Giants won 77 games and lost 85 last season. The Giants will enter this year under the guidance of their new manager Gabe Kapler. The biggest drawback for San Francisco is missing out on their top catcher Buster Posey. When it comes to batting, the Giants held the 27th spot last season. However, they seem to have some tricks up their sleeve with their relief pitchers. San Francisco secured the sixth spot in WHIP and fourth spot in ERA last season. The Giants will deliver Johnny Cueto to the mound as their starting pitcher in this game. San Francisco will need a good focus on their bats if they need to win this game against the Dodgers.

Players to watch: M. Dubon SS (GP 13 AB 33 R 8 H 10 2B 3 3B 0 HR 2 RBI 3 TB 19 BB 1 SO 7 SB 1 AVG 0.303 OBP 0.324 SLG 0.576 OPS 0.899), D. Ruf 1B (GP 16 AB 33 R 8 H 12 2B 5 3B 1 HR 3 RBI 9 TB 28 BB 3 SO 10 SB 1 AVG 0.364 OBP 0.405 SLG 0.848 OPS 1.254).
