Earlier today Kershaw was named the team’s Opening Day starter for its regular season opener against the Giants on April 1.
While the rest of the rotation is yet to be determined, there is a good chance that this is it here.
Greinke will begin the first season of a 6-year/$159 million contract this season. Last season with the Brewers and Angels, he went 15-5 with a 3.48 ERA, numbers that have fans excited to see him backing up team-ace Clayton Kershaw.
Meanwhile Ryu will begin his own six-year pact, but at a much reduced rate of $36 million.
Last year while pitching for the Hanwha Eagles of the Korean Baseball Organization, he went 9-9 with a 2.66 ERA.
Speculation has surrounded Ryu because of his shape during Spring Training. But he feels he’s fine, stating that he’s in “throwing shape”.
Kershaw will lead the Dodgers play in their first Spring Training game against the White Sox next Saturday. That game is followed by a rematch with the Dodgers’ spring neighbors, with Greinke taking the mound. Finally, the Dodgers will oppose the other Chicago team, the Cubs, on Monday with Ryu starting.
All three games will begin at 12:05 p.m.
