Dodgers’ playoff lineup still uncertain

first_imgDodgers manager Don Mattingly still doesn’t know whose name he’ll write in for two spots on the playoff roster for Monday’s Game 3 of the NLCS.It’s disconcerting to be sure. Andre Ethier didn’t play in Game 2 because he didn’t feel he could play defense at the level that’s required in center field, and shortstop Hanley Ramirez hopes a CT scan of the bruised ribs on his left side turns out in his favor and that the pain he’s experiencing lessens.If neither Ethier (ankle) nor Ramirez can play, the Dodgers likely would play Skip Schumaker and Nick Punto, respectively. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I didn’t feel I could give the effort to play center field (that’s required) in a game with this much importance,” Ethier said. “Being in the lineup and hitting and running the bases (is fine).”If he feels the same today, he’d still be available to pinch hit. He was unable to catch a ball at the wall in Game 1 that, when healthy, he would’ve gotten to and he was out of the Game 2 lineup.“We haven’t made that decision,” Ethier said of his status for Game 3. “We have to get to that point where it’s no a question mark on the defensive side.”Pitching optionsRicky Nolasco is scheduled to be the Game 4 starter, but Nolasco was bumped from his start in Game 4 of the NLDS in favor of Clayton Kershaw pitching on three days’ rest. Kershaw and Zack Greinke could conceivably both pitch on three days’ rest in this series.center_img Mattingly fielded a question over whether Kershaw could pitch out of the bullpen if necessary. “We haven’t talked about Kershaw out of the bullpen,” Mattingly said. “We haven’t talked about anybody on three days’ rest.”Keep in mind Mattingly downplayed questions about the prospect of pitching Kershaw on three days’ rest, and then, five hours before Game 4 against the Braves, the Dodgers announced Kershaw would pitch on three days’ rest.“It always makes sense any time you mention those two guys’ names (Kershaw and Greinke),” Mattingly said. “But, it’s something as I said, we haven’t talked about at this point.”Friendly commish?Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright and Schumaker are former teammates, and they still play on the same fantasy football league. Wainwright is the commissioner.“I’m his fantasy football commissioner in one league, so within the last two minutes, I had to make a last-second adjustment to his roster,” Wainwright said on Sunday.Schumaker retorted: “I asked (for that change) a week ago.”Schumaker touted Wainwright’s abilities on the mound but not as commissioner of fantasy football.“He’s one of the worst commissioners,” Schumaker playfully said. “He’s always late for the draft. Brian McCann is in it. He’ll be able to tell you.”Struggling PuigYasiel Puig is showing his rookie colors, as he’s 0 for 10 with six strikeouts in the first two games of the NLCS. He was more than fine at the plate in the NLDS, where he had eight hits in four games. Teammate Hanley Ramirez said he’s talked to Puig. “He said he’s going to get it (today),” Ramirez said. “He’s learning. (Today) he’s going to play and maybe do some damage.”Said Mattingly: “I don’t think anything’s going to change the way they pitch him. … We’ll continue to talk to him and as much as anything else, for him to get himself good pitches to hit and just to keep going. Can’t let those two (games) turn into a third.“He had a good series against Atlanta. His thinking was good. He’s been fairly patient in the sense of getting good counts. He’s just got to settle down, be himself and keep going.”last_img read more
