The Dodgers traded for a starter to begin the game against the Brewers tonight. However, that trade ended up being of little consequence as they fell 9-3 in the late innings. With Josh Beckett going on the disabled list before tonight’s game, all eyes were on the new acquisition Roberto Hernandez.

Which One Of These Pitchers Could Be A Dodger Soon?

As I said yesterday after discussing Roberto Hernandez, “Some other starter is going to appear, potentially soon.
