Dodgers set post All-Star break rotation.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly announced his starting rotation coming out of the All-Star break, when the Dodgers will travel to Washington D.C. and Toronto for a pair of three-game series.

Ricky Nolasco, today’s starter, will pitch on five days’ rest next Friday against the Nationals. He’ll be followed by Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Chris Capuano.

If that rotation order holds, Greinke and Kershaw will be the starters July 30 and 31 when the New York Yankees visit Dodger Stadium.

In other rotation news, Mattingly and pitching coach Rick Honeycutt have decided on a plan for injured left-hander Ted Lilly, but the manager wouldn’t say what that plan is.

Lilly, who’s been on the disabled list since June 9 with a sprained neck, is 0-2 with a 5.09 ERA in five starts this season.

“We talked about some different scenarios,” Mattingly said. “We settled on the one we want. We haven’t talked to Teddy yet.”
