HOUSTON — Yasmani Grandal has caught Zack Greinke‘s last 15 starts, including Saturday, and 23 of 25 overall this season. He probably would’ve caught a 24th had he not missed a week in May because of a concussion.
Despite off-days next Monday and Thursday, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he will keep his starting pitchers in turn for the two-game series in Oakland next Tuesday and Wednesday.
Looking ahead, the Dodgers will host the San Francisco Giants from Aug. 31 to September 2. Right now, if no pitcher skips his turn in the rotation, Kershaw and Zack Greinke will miss that series entirely.
“We haven’t set it yet,” Mattingly said of his rotation for the Giants series. “We’re just talking about it.”
