The Dodgers finish up a testing four-day, six-game stretch Monday with simultaneous split-squad games, plus a Minor League game. In a game against the Brewers at Maryvale, likely Opening Day starter Clayton Kershaw will pitch the bulk of the innings, with Russ Ortiz following. At Camelback Ranch-Glendale against the Angels, Rule 5 pick Carlos Monasterios starts, with relievers Jonathan Broxton, George Sherrill, Jeff Weaver and Justin Miller on the list to pitch. And in a camp game, Charlie Haeger is scheduled to pitch five innings. Haeger, Monasterios, Ortiz, Weaver and Miller are fighting for jobs and these games could be crucial in deciding who advances in the competition.
