Dodgers Place Carlos Frias on the DL, Mull Over Limited Options

In the end it is basically a push. The Dodgers have little to no chance of winning these games anyways. Unless Beachy is ready, or Nicasio can be a starter again the club is probably going to lose these games anyways. Frias’s spot comes up twice before the all-star break, and then another two games after on the next road trip.

So the best course of action is to probably call up Cahill, or Stults, or one of those bums, and let him pitch in order to save the bullpen. You hope that Frias will be back right after the break, throw a Cahill or a Scott Baker start and you pray. This is the fault of the brain trust for hoarding all of these washed up bums instead of spending a few bucks and making sure to get somebody reliable. Now it’s too late and there’s really nothing else the Dodgers can do right now. The trade deadline is looming and you can bet dollars to donuts that the brain trust will somehow acquire another starting pitcher. Until then the Dodgers will have to make do with the bums they already have.
