Juan Pizzle back in the lineup
That seems to be the name that Orlando has been calling Juan Pierre and sometimes it just gets dropped to Pizzle. Well, Pizzle got an incredible ovation in last night’s game and the Dodger fans showed their true appreciation for him stepping up when he was needed.
He gets another shot to step up tonight…here’s the lineup
Billingsley, P (By the way, in case you’ve missed it, you can chat with Chad on Tuesday at 2 p.m. in the latest Dodger web chat)
UPDATE – Torre pregame
On using Broxton tonight:
Very confident. This is something he’s had before. And he responded to the shot. He threw yesterday and felt nothing at all.
On Belisario throwing today:
Belisario did already. We’ll have a schedule arranged for him.
Kuo will pitch tomorrow in San Bernardino.
On the fifth starter for Monday:
We’re still going through it. As soon as we know something for sure we’ll let you know.
On Cory Wade:
Cory wasn’t available to us that last day in Milwaukee and that raised a red flag to us. We didn’t know exactly what it was. It came down to throwing yesterday to determine the DL time. I’ll let you know what the plan is. It’s in an area they believe it can be treated.
He’ll get a game or two a week. It’ll be a conbination of other guys struggling or him having good numbers (against the opposing starter).
