In the Dodgers’ starting rotation, “TBA” probably stands for “Paul Maholm.”

Ian Kennedy is the San Diego Padres’ scheduled starter for Saturday’s game at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers’ starter is still listed as “TBA.”

“Today’s game will determine what we do tomorrow,” manager Don Mattingly said.

What about Paul Maholm?

“Pretty good chance,” Mattingly said. “I feel like that’s our choice, but depending on how this game goes, how we have to use him or not use him, makes the choice for us.”

Plan B, Red Patterson, skipped his normal turn in the Albuquerque Isotopes’ rotation Friday night. Jeff Bennett started instead. Drew Carpenter is scheduled to start tomorrow.

Stay tuned for an announcement, conceivably after tonight’s game.
