Three key relievers see first game action


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers got their first game looks at three key members of the bullpen Tuesday when Brandon League, Kenley Jansen and J.P. Howell pitched an inning each against the Giants.

League, signed to a three-year, $22.5 million contract to close after his acquisition from Seattle last year, allowed a solo home run by Brett Pill and had a strikeout.

Jansen, who recovered quickly from an ingrown toenail last week, walked the first batter he faced, but retired the next three.

Howell, signed to a $2.85 million deal when left-hander Scott Elbert needed a second elbow operation, was charged with two runs when he allowed a walk, hit a batter and allowed a two-run double to left-handed hitter Brandon Belt.
