Chris Capuano, not Ted Lilly as was speculated, will be taking Zack Greinke‘s spot in the rotation. Dylan Hernandez reports on Twitter that Capuano will start on Tuesday for the Dodgers.

Capuano had dealt with elbow problems between 2008-10, but posted back-to-back full seasons in 2011-12 between the Mets and Dodgers with a combined 4.12 ERA. Greinke is expected to miss eight weeks with a broken collarbone suffered in Thursday night’s bench-clearing brawl in San Diego.

The Dodgers had a surfeit of starting pitching entering the season and they were expected to trade off one or two arms, but GM Ned Colletti stood pat. In retrospect, Dodger fans are happy he did.

      Since we seem to be enemies I guess that would make you a Troll. Trolls simply detest the very sight of dwarves (uncooked). Trolls are slow in the uptake, and mighty suspicious about anything new to them.

    Lol. Who’s going to cover Kershaws spot in the rotation after he tries to show a certain Padre “what’s best for him”?

    Fortunately, Kersh isn’t pitching in the series. It will be a reliever, prob Tolleson. They can’t afford a suspension for a starter. My guess is Tues after Cap comes out of the game, Tolleson will try to put one in Quentin’s ear hole. Not going to say I hope he succeeds, but I do think Quentin deserves to be out for more than 8 games.
