No one expected the cavalry to be the kiddie corps
but that is what happened when the original calvary all came up lame while Clayton was shelved.
At first, it was going to be Ryu then McCarthy, then Anderson. None of them survived their charge and all went back to the DL they came from. Instead, it was rookies Urias / Stewart / Stripling who rode to the rescue. Later Kazmir went down, and Jose De Leon joined the kiddie corp cavalry.
Now as we head into late September the original cavalry is trying to make one more charge. McCarthy is throwing simulated games, and Brett Anderson talked his way into a start tomorrow night. Alex Wood was activated on Tuesday but only for bullpen duty. Scott Kazmir will be making a start on Friday.
It is possible the Dodgers will be able to add Brett Anderson, Scott Kazmir, Brandon McCarthy, and Alex Wood to the pitching roster.
Just like in the outfield Dave Roberts and the LAD front office will have some hard decisions to make if all of these pitchers prove capable over the next two weeks.
