On the complications of getting 10 starting pitchers appropriate work in spring games, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the logistical challenge will take some finesse. "I think in a perfect world, they can all pitch in an A game," Roberts said. "But sometimes they will have to pitch on a back field and that's just the way it is."
