Today Josh Rutledge was moved to the DL retroactive to Monday. RutRut is suffering a bad GutGut according to the team and Ryan Wheeler has been called up to replace him. The team also announced that Chacin will start Sunday’s final game against the Mets as he comes of the DL to make his first appearance of the season.
Tonight’s game against the Mets features De La Rosa on the bump. While nobody could have predicted Jorge’s implosion filled start of the season, he has been able to climb out of the doldrums and posted his best start yet last time he was given the ball, keeping the Dodgers to one run over seven innings. One only has to look to 2009’s De La Rosa to remember he can start slow, losing his first six that year, before he finished very strong winning his 16 out of 19 decisions.
