Pirates at Dodgers, 1:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, ROOTPIT
The Dodgers’ Brett Anderson makes his season debut after rehabbing all year from arthroscopic back surgery in March. He’ll face Chad Kuhl (2-0, 3.91 ERA), who made his big league debut against the Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw back on June 26 and won.
Anderson has made three rehab starts between Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga and Triple-A Oklahoma City, topping out at 71 pitches and five innings in his final start.
Brandon McCarthy is likely headed for the 15-day DL with a newly-disclosed hip injury. He and the Dodgers both hope that’s what caused his control to disappear in his last four starts. He says he hurt the hip fielding a bunt in Colorado last month.
McCarthy and Ravin both go to 15-day DL, Ravin with right triceps soreness and McCarthy with the hip problem described above.
