The Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants open Cactus League play with a 3:05 p.m. EST start at Scottsdale Stadium, Scottsdale, Ariz. At the same time, the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians take the field at Goodyear Ballpark, Goodyear, Ariz.

There may be a chance of rain for the weekend in Arizona but it depends on how much precipitation may move through as a result of a storm system expected to bring beneficial rains to California.
