Dave Roberts Reveals Dodgers Projected Starters For Korea Games

We are a month out from the Dodgers season-opening games against the San Diego Padres in Korea, and the excitement is astounding. After a massive spending spree by the front office this winter, the fanbase couldn’t be more ready for a season to start.

It was already reported that rookie right-hander Yoshinobu Yamamoto would likely make his Dodgers debut in one of the two games, but manager Dave Roberts seemed to tip his hand for the other game. He mentioned that it was a “safe bet” that newly acquired Tyler Glasnow would start the other game.

We don’t know which pitcher will take which game, but the Dodgers seem to be gearing up to have their top two starters take the mound to open the year. The two games in Korea will be massive for marketing purposes, so it makes sense to throw Yamamoto and Glasnow out there.

Los Angeles will get a chance early on to see two of their big-time investments this winter take center stage. It will also be a good test for the Dodgers to face a Padres team, who would love nothing more than to spoil the party L.A. has been throwing all offseason.

The games are already showing incredible anticipation from fans all over the world, in part because it will also be the debut of Shohei Ohtani with the team. We should be in for two good matchups, and fans will finally get to see the new arms take the mound in meaningful contests.
