Los Angeles Dodgers RP Paul Maholm, or a minor league call-up will start Saturday, July 8, against the St. Louis Cardinals, according to manager Don Mattingly. SP Red Patterson is scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Albuquerque Saturday and could be an option.
Fantasy Tip: Regardless of who starts, facing the Cardinals is a tough task, and a spot start is unadvised.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Paul Maholm is expected to start Saturday, April 5, against the San Francisco Giants.
Fantasy Tip: Maholm continues to see a bigger role than expected due to the absence of Clayton Kershaw.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (back) will be put on a rehab program that includes a submaximal throwing program for the next two to three weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Kershaw's back injury has turned out to be much more significant than he or the team let on initially. He'll be re-evaluated in two to three weeks, which means he probably won't be able to rejoin the rotation for another month at the earliest. Paul Maholm will continue to lock down a rotation spot until Josh Beckett (thumb) is ready to return in mid-April.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Josh Beckett has won the fifth starter job in the rotation, sending SP Paul Maholm and his $1.5 million contract to the bullpen for the time being.

The Los Angeles Dodgers' fifth rotation spot isn't sealed up yet with SP Chad Billingsley (elbow) returning from Tommy John surgery and SP Josh Beckett (thumb) dinged up. SP Paul Maholm went only 2 2/3 frames Thursday, March 13, and allowed six runs on six hits on a pair of home runs. Maholm will likely be in the bullpen if he cannot beat out Beckett for the final spot. Los Angeles won't need a fifth starter until the middle of April, however. SPs Stephen Fife and Seth Rosin may be options for the rotation if Beckett or Maholm don't work out.

I'm not concerned with roles."
