Dodgers at Mets, 4:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, MLBN
In Zack Greinke’s absence (no official word yet from the Dodgers about any newborn child) rookie Ian Thomas starts for the Dodgers against Jon Niese of the Mets. Thomas came over from the Braves with Callaspo in return for Juan Uribe in a six-player deal at the end of May of this year. This will be his first major league start after 23 relief appearances. Niese has been excellent over the past two months; he’s gone at least seven innings in five of his last seven starts while compiling a 2.00 ERA. Overall he’s 5-8 with a 3.36 ERA.
Update: Congrats to Mrs. Greinke and her husband Zack: 19″, 6 pounds, 5 ounces baby boy!
Lineup when available.
