Still no starter por manana …

… but it’s fairly obvious it’s going to be Kuo. They’re going to announce it after the game. My best guess about what is going to happen is this: Andy LaRoche will go back to Las Vegas to make room for Kuo, giving the Dodgers a 12-man pitching staff and giving the seven or so members of the LaRoche family who traveled to Pittsburgh from Kansas and Minnesota to watch LaRoche and his brother Adam square off in a regular season major-league game for the first time in their lives a serious case of buyer’s remorse. Then, assuming Jason Schmidt’s side session goes well tomorrow, Schmidt will be activated in time to take Hendrickson’s rotation spot on Tuesday night at San Diego, at which time Hull will be sent back to the minors. That would give the Dodgers’ the rotation they thought they were going to have when they went to spring training: Wolf, Kuo, Penny, Lowe and Schmidt. That would APPEAR to be Plan A, but it’s flexible in the event something unforeseen (injury, etc.) happens.
