News of the day and lineup

Saito’s MRI showed nothing. He will rejoin the team during the game tonight, and there is some hope he will be ready to pitch by tomorrow. He had an injury similar to this in Japan. This one started with pain over a large area of his back and neck, and it has since subsided to a small, localized area. Saito told Grady that was exactly what happened in Japan, and the localization of the pain told him then that he was almost ready to come back. … They called up Eric Hull, sending Eric Stults out to make room for him. Stults came through for them in a spot start yesterday, and, as Grady said, “It had nothing to do with his performance.” Rather, the Dodgers had to have another arm in the pen, so they had to make room for one.
