Ryu out through the All-Star break with his groin muscle being torn completely off the bone:o

 

Roberts quoted as saying that Buehler is now a ‘fixture’ in the rotation going forward.

 

That just made me wince. YIKES!

Anymore opinions on this guy in standard 12 team H2h redraft leagues now that he is a fixture?

Yes, he's a pickup.  He flashed his big time potential in the final four innings of his last start.  He was a mess in the first inning, and not exactly that efficient even in his first start, but those last 4 innings on Saturday were very nice.

Buehler and Soroka are gonna set the league on fire. 

 

Just wait. 

 

Horses like these lead to titles in September. :ph34r:

I tend to agree. But I'm being biased because I own them both.  :)

So do I. I've been holding Buehler or three weeks and Soroka for roughly ten days. For some reason my sense of when players are about to get the call is always pretty locked in. Moves like this are why I've managed to win two titles in the last three years. 

 

High end starting pitching costs a fortune in my league. 

 

As for Soroka he looks really poised on the mound.

Fully agree these guys can get you to important games in Sept, but they simply are not gonna win you those games--innings limits and all...

Soroka won't have one and Buehler might have to help keep LA in it bc AZ is the real deal this year. 

 

I agree that young horses getting shut down can kill a team's momentum that's title hunting, but I'd rather have them then not, prior them being put in the barn.

It would be surprising if Soroka had one, but Buehler may if LA never gets their act together.  Some of that will be determined when Turner gets back, as they obviously need him badly without Seager.

 

Even if Buehler still gets shut down at some point, guys like him can at least help get you into a great position so when they do get shut down, you're right in the middle of the race.  Whether they get you over the hump at the very end or not, putting you right in the thick of things is nearly as important.

That forecast is defaulting to Petco because it's a technically a SDP home game. Dailybaseballdata has it right and it doesn't look good.

Thanks.  Weather.com has it raining until at least 3-4 PM tomorrow.

 

I think Buehler gets pushed back a day and they get the 3 game set in.  Dodgers seem determined to keep CK on long rest for Tues vs AZ.

Easy sit for me. Weather still looks sketchy and it appears that Bellinger riding the pine tonight. 

Both things are true, but I'm still not sure why that makes him an easy sit.  He's still going up against the Padres.  That's just my opinion though.

How many opportunities will this kid, or any pitcher for that matter have for a no no?

 

He had thrown 93 pitches through six despite not giving up a hit.  There's no way they were going to let the new "fixture" in their rotation get to the 120-130 pitches necessary to complete a no-no.  The only question was to let him pitch until he gave up a hit, or to take him out and maybe let him be part of a combined no hitter.  Roberts made the right call here.
