Rodriguez gets nod for Cactus League opener

Derrick Rodriguez will get the start today against the Dodgers in the Giants first Spring Training game. Manager Gabe Kapler will send out the 27 year old who was 6-11 last year after going 6-4 in his rookie season. Rodriguez, the son of Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez was 0-2 in 2019 in 4 games including 2 starts against LA. The right hander allowed 16 runs (13 earned) in just 9 innings pitched against LA last season with only 8 strikeouts.

Tony Gonsolin will be on the bump today for the Los Angeles Dodgers.. Last season during his rookie season, he split time both out of the bullpen and in the starting pitcher role. Gonsolin was 4-2 in 11 games including 6 starts and went 0-1 in 2 games against the Giants. He held San Francisco to a .118 batting average in those 2 games but pitched just 5 total innings.

First pitch is at 12:05pm
