From beat writer Ken Gurnick of MLB.com comes word that right-hander Ricky Nolasco is scheduled to make his debut for the Dodgers on Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks at Arizona’s Chase Field.

It’ll be an important outing for Nolasco, who was acquired on Saturday evening from the Marlins in exchange for minor league pitchers Steve Ames, Josh Wall, and and Angel Sanchez. The Dodgers are currently trailing the D’Backs by only 4 1/2 games in the National League West standings and will be looking to make up even more ground during this week’s crucial three-game set in Phoenix.

Nolasco had a 3.85 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 90/25 K/BB ratio through 112 1/3 innings this season with Miami.

To clear a spot for him in the starting rotation, the Dodgers moved left-hander Chris Capuano to the bullpen.

    Now Scrooge only needs to unload Stanton, and he’ll have his dream…a team that precisely NO ONE gives a damn about.

      But strangely, had one of the best records in baseball in June.

        Even historically-bad teams are capable of going on tears.

        It’s just sickening that Loria bilked the city out of millions and then unloaded all the talent.

        Actually…what’s sickening is that the city agreed to the deal in the first place. That Loria is a consummate snowball artist should surprise no one.

    Jose Fernandez would still be worth giving a damn about!

      Until he’s arbitration eligible and Scrooge McLoria salary dumps him too.
