MILWAUKEE–In the spirit of calling a spade a spade, I’m calling an ace an ace. Zack Greinke is the Dodgers’ ace at this particular moment in time, right now.

A challenged call from Monday’s game remained a topic of discussion Tuesday.

My notebook from Monday about Daniel Coulombe’s new mental approach, and Alex Guerrero’s struggles, finally posted this afternoon. You can read that here.

Joe Wieland will make his Dodgers debut Wednesday in Milwaukee.

MILWAUKEE — Joe Wieland will be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City and make his Dodgers debut tomorrow as the starting pitcher against the Brewers. Carlos Frias, who had been scheduled to pitch tomorrow, will start the finale of the four-game series Thursday instead.

Wieland, one of two players the Dodgers acquired from the San Diego Padres in the Matt Kemp trade, was 3-0 with a 3.60 earned-run average in four starts at Triple-A Oklahoma City. He’s faced the Brewers once in his career, on April 30, 2012, and lost the game in San Diego.

Frias said he is healthy and could have started tomorrow’s game if needed. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that Frias would throw a “touch and feel” session Tuesday at Miller Park.

The Dodgers’ rotation for the three-game weekend series against the Colorado Rockies lines up normally: Brett Anderson on Friday, Clayton Kershaw on Saturday and Zack Greinke on Sunday.
