Padilla to go despite getting hit
Dodgers manager Joe Torre said the right-handed Padilla (0-1) will start Saturday night at Florida. Haeger, a knuckleballer with 39 strikeouts and 33 walks in 53 big league innings over parts of four seasons, will start Sunday against the Marlins.
Padilla, expected to be the No. 4 starter when spring training began, gave up seven runs and six hits and walked three in 4 1/3 innings of the Dodgers' 11-5 loss to the Pirates on Monday.
