Out for the last few days with the flu, Jay Gibbons will make his spring debut when the Dodgers face the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday at Camelback Ranch.

But the flu has forced another Dodger, Ted Lilly, to be scratched from what was supposed to be his first start of the spring. Manager Don Mattingly said Lilly might be out for a few more days.

Tim Redding, who pitched in South Korea last year, will start in Lilly’s place.

Dodgers’ lineup:

Carroll 3B
Navarro C
Ethier RF
Kemp CF
Kapler LF
Loney 1B
Gibbons DH
DeJesus 2B
Castro SS

Redding RHP
