Venable is starting in right field and batting eighth against Milwaukee on Thursday.

Venable is making his first start for the Dodgers this season after the club acquired him on Tuesday. He's likely to be a fill-in outfielder going forward given the Dodgers have Howie Kendrick and Joc Pederson playing regularly and Yasiel Puig is returning soon. However, his left-handed bat could provide him playing time as he'd be a solid matchup against right-handers.
