Found April 16, 2013 on Dodgers Rumors:
After a disappointing loss last night on Jackie Robinson night, the Dodgers will look to get things back on track in game two of the three game series with the San Diego Padres. This will be the Dodgers’ first look at what life will be like for the next couple months without Zack Greinke in their rotation. That starting pitching depth is looking pretty good now, right? After being one of the most heavily shopped players of the off-season, Chris Capuano started the 2013 season in the bullpen. The 2012 12-game winner now gets a crack to re-establish himself as a starter. Win-win for the Dodgers really. Capuano will fill in nicely I’m sure, plus he will hopefully boost his value just in time to get traded when Greinke comes back.   Capuano has had two phenomenal appearances in relief in 2013. Interestingly enough, both came against the Padres. He put up a total of 2-2/3 innings of work, while only giving up two hits and no runs, including four punch-outs. Let’s hope we see more of the same as the Dodgers try to avoid the seasons first three-game losing streak. Tonight should be a fun night at the ballpark as the Dodgers will celebrate Taiwanese culture, and host Taiwan Night. Many festivities will be held on the field before first pitch, including a ceremony for the Taiwanese lantern in lot G of the parking lot. Dodgers Starting Lineup Carl Crawford, LF Mark Ellis, 2B Matt Kemp, CF Adrian Gonzalez, 1B Andre Ethier, RF A.J. Ellis, C Juan Uribe, 3B Justin Sellers, SS Chris Capuano, P Padres Staring Lineup Chris Denorfia, RF Everth Cabrera, SS Yonder Alsonso, 1B Jesus Guzman, LF Jedd Gyorko, 3B Nick Hundley, C Cameron Maybin, CF Alexi Amarista, 2B Jason Marquis, P Still looking for Dodgers tickets? It’s not too late to grab your tickets for tonight’s game. Also don’t forget tomorrow night is the Hello Kitty Fleece Blanket giveaway, as the Dodgers finish up with the San Diego Padres. Then the Dodgers head to Baltimore for their first inter-league series of the season. Go blue!
