How to watch Dodgers vs. Padres MLB spring training game today, time

Spring training games officially get underway Thursday with the San Diego Padres hosting the Los Angeles Dodgers in Cactus League action, a preview of the regular season’s opening series in Seoul, South Korea scheduled for March 20-21.

The Dodgers won all the headlines this offseason by signing Shohei Ohtani ($700 million) and Yoshinobu Yamamoto ($325 million) after winning the NL West for the 10th time in 11 seasons.

Ohtani will not play in Thursday’s opener, still recovering from last season’s surgery – but has said he expects to get about 50 at-bats during spring training.

San Diego had a disappointing 2023 season (82-80) and failed to get back to the playoffs after reaching the NLCS in 2022. This winter, the Padres traded free-agent-to-be Juan Soto to the New York Yankees and are without reigning NL Cy Young winner Blake Snell, who remains unsigned.
