Here's what to watch throughout the day (all times ET):
Kershaw faces Mariners: LAD@SEA, 4:10 p.m., MLB.TV
Kershaw gets the ball in his final spring tuneup on the road against the Mariners. The ace is preparing for his seventh consecutive Opening Day start. Kershaw has already racked up 28 strikeouts in 21 innings over six outings in the Cactus League.
Hisashi Iwakuma takes the mound for the Mariners. Iwakuma is 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA in five appearances this spring.

Halos, Crew wrap up Cactus League slates: LAA@MIL, 3:05 p.m., MLB.TV
Matthew Shoemaker takes the mound for the Angels as he trends toward an Opening Day start, though the Halos have not made it official. Shoemaker has enjoyed a solid spring in his return from a skull fracture that ended his 2016 season early. He's made four starts in the Cactus League and has 18 strikeouts in 13 innings.
Zach Davies starts for the Brewers. Davies is projected as Milwaukee's No. 2 starter to open the season.
It's the final Cactus League game for both clubs. The Angels return home to play the Dodgers in the Freeway Series on Thursday and the Brewers head back to Miller Park to host the White Sox on Friday.

Carrasco opposes Finnegan: CLE@CIN, 3:05 p.m., MLB.TV
The Indians and Reds play their final Cactus League contest at Goodyear Ballpark, the complex they share.
Carlos Carrasco draws the start for the Indians. He's struggled this spring, with an 11.45 ERA and eight strikeouts in 11 innings over five appearances.
Brandon Finnegan gets the ball for the Reds. The lefty is targeted to start the second game of the regular season.

Chacin preps for Opening Day: SD@CWS, 3:05 p.m., MLB.TV
Chacin takes the mound for the first time since being named San Diego's Opening Day starter. The veteran signed a one-year deal with the Padres in the offseason. Chacin, who will make his second career Opening Day start, owns a 3.86 ERA in three spring outings. He missed a chunk of camp because of the World Baseball Classic, during which he pitched for Team Venezuela.
Dylan Covey, a Rule 5 Draft pick, toes the rubber for the White Sox. Covey seeks to make a strong final impression in his bid to earn a spot in the starting rotation.
