Clayton Kershaw might not start the regular-season opener in Australia, but he will start the Cactus League opener Wednesday, when the Dodgers are hosted by the rival Arizona Diamondbacks and Vin Scully calls the action live at noon PT on the Dodgers' new TV network, SportsNet LA. Is Kershaw glad to get going? "It's about time," he said. Asked if he wanted to go to Australia, Kershaw said: "Ask Donnie." Clayton Kershaw was rocked for three runs on five hits in two innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks went on to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 Wednesday in the teams' spring training opener. Dodgers: Kershaw had trouble from the start, giving up a one-out single to Aaron Hill and an RBI double to Prado in the first inning. Thinking along those lines, the Los Angeles Dodgers are hesitating to commit Clayton Kershaw to pitch in their season-opening series against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Australia on March 22-23. Yasiel Puig went 2-for-3 with an RBI double for the Dodgers. Major League Baseball teams take great care to spare their best players from having to travel to the other side of town during spring training, much less the other side of the planet.
