On Thursday the Los Angeles Dodgers will start a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels before they take on the San Diego Padres to start the domestic portion of their 2014 season. It was announced a few days ago that Zack Greinke and Dan Haren will be the first two starters of the series. Because these games are considered extra spring training games, the Dodgers can use an extended roster, meaning that they can carry more players than just the thirty who traveled to Australia.

In these exhibition games, the Dodgers will use the five minor leaguers on the Australia roster in addition to J.C. Boscan, Miguel Olivo, Trayvon Robinson and Darnell Sweeney. These players will have at least three extra games with the team before being sent back down to the minors and the team must solidify the 25-man roster before their first game on Sunday.

Despite asking to be released from the team nearly two weeks ago, Olivo will be playing with the Dodgers for at least the next three games. Robinson only tallied five at bats this spring and Sweeney also played well this spring.
