Dodgers Vs. Diamondbacks: Starting Lineups, Juan Castro Returns

The Dodgers are in search of their third straight win on Friday night as they open up a seven-game homestand with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Clayton Kershaw gets the start for the Dodgers, looking for his third straight win as well. Joe Saunders gets the start for Arizona.

The Dodgers have brought back Juan Castro for his fourth stint as in Los Angeles. Castro, who signed a minor league deal in December and would have been up sooner were it not for an oblique injury in April, had his contract purchased from Triple A Albuqerque before tonight's game. Ivan DeJesus was optioned to Triple A to make room for Castro on the active roster, and catcher Hector Gimenez was transferred to the 60-day disabled list to make room on the 40-man roster. Here are tonight's starting lineups:

Diamondbacks (15-21)

Nady 1B
Drew SS
Upton RF
Johnson 2B
