Mattingly sets Dodgers’ second-half rotation
By Jon Weisman
Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw will get some extra time after Tuesday’s All-Star Game before they start again for the Dodgers.
Don Mattingly told reporters today that Dan Haren will kick things off Friday at St. Louis, followed by Greinke and Kershaw. Hyun-Jin Ryu, who starts Sunday’s first-half finale, will next take the mound July 21 in Pittsburgh, followed by Paul Maholm or another substitute for Josh Beckett, presuming Beckett isn’t activated that day.
As Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. pointed out, this sets up Grienke, Kershaw and Ryu to start July 25-27 for the Dodgers in San Francisco.
