More Tales of the Dodgers Pitching Staff
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of the Dodgers pitching rotation.
As reported last night, the Dodgers brought up starter Eric Stults from AAA Albuquerque Isotopes. In order to make room on the 25-man roster, they sent infielder Tony Abreu back to Albuquerque before the game.
Stults last pitched on Thursday giving up one earned run on two hits in three innings pitched against the Portland Beavers.
“He just threw three innings,” manager Joe Torre said of Stults’ short rest. “We cut him back in the event we needed him, so he should be fine.”
As for starter Chad Billingsley, who left Friday’s game with a left hamstring strain, the prognosis looks optimistic.
“[Billingsley] played catch on flat ground, and he was okay,” said Torre. “Tomorrow he’ll get up on the mound, and we’ll know more.”
