Ricky Nolasco is currently lined up for the assignment, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly acknowledged to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times this afternoon that things could change depending on the results of tonight’s game. In other words, Nolasco should go if the Dodgers win, but they’ll likely turn to Greinke on three days’ rest if they are facing elimination tomorrow. This would set up the possibility of Kershaw going on short rest again in Game 5.
Greinke allowed two runs and struck out 10 batters over eight innings in Game 1 of the series on Friday. While Kershaw started on three days’ rest for the first time in his career last week, Greinke has done it twice before.
