What’s better than one spring training game? Well, any regular season game, I guess. You’re getting two spring training games today, though.
In one split squad contest, Lance Lynn will make his spring debut with Texas as half the team grabs the bus out to Glendale, Arizona to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers at Camelback Ranch. The Rangers making the trek to Glendale will face right-hander Kenta Maeda for Los Angeles.
Back at home base, the rest of the Rangers will take on the Fightin’ Prellers from San Diego at Surprise Stadium in Surprise, Arizona. Interesting prospect Brock Burke will make the start for Texas opposite righty Chris Paddack for the Padres.
2 games on Sunday: vs. SD: Choo DH, Odor 4, Andrus 6, Gallo 8, Cabrera 5, Mathis 2, Wisdom 3, Santana 9, Tocci 7, Burke 1— John Blake (@RangerBlake) March 3, 2019
At LAD: Pence DH, Calhoun 7, Mazara 9, Davidson 5, Guzman 3, Forsythe 6, White 8, Ibanez 4, Trevino 2, Lynn 1— John Blake (@RangerBlake) March 3, 2019
Here’s the dilemma: The Los Angeles game has Lance Lynn and he’s here inexplicably for three years and who wants to watch more Lance Lynn than they have to, you know? But the Los Angeles game is the one that will be televised via MLB.TV.
However, the Padres game has Brock Burke going and Joey Gallo in CF but has been regulated to the radio on 105.3 The Fan. Seems like an easy call but if you want to actually watch baseball with your eyeballs, you’ll have to watch the Dodgers game.
Nevertheless, both games start at 2:05 pm CT so choose wisely.
