The Los Angeles Dodgers had the day off on Monday as they made their way to Philadelphia. The Dodgers will begin a 3-game series vs. the Phillies on Tuesday before taking off to face the Cincinnati Reds for a 4-game series.

The Dodgers rotation has been hit with more injuries after Brett Anderson was injured in his first game back with the Dodgers. Despite it being travel day the Dodgers made some roster moves on Monday. On Tuesday they announced that they will be reinstating Casey Fien from the disabled list, after spending a month there with elbow tendinitis. So far this year, Fien has a 5.55 ERA with 31 strikeouts in 35.2 innings pitched.

Dodgers-LowDown had the news first about Fien who has been dealing with elbow tendinitis. Fien was playing with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes when the Dodgers officially activated the right-hander from the 15-day disabled list.

It’s unclear if Fien will make an appearance out of the bullpen in the series vs. the Phillies, though what is clear is who the team’s starting pitchers will be. The Dodgers already have their probable pitchers set with Kenta Maeda taking the mound for the series opener.

The Dodgers enter this road trip looking to gain some much needed ground in the NL West. It’s a tight race for first place as the Dodgers are now just half a game back from first place behind the San Francisco Giants.

Following the 7-game road trip the Dodgers will return to Dodger Stadium for a series vs. their Northern rivals.

    This should be an interesting series.  LA is facing two pitchers that the Phillies got from Texas in the Cole Hamels trade (Eickhoff and Thompson) and a pitcher from their Ken Giles trade with Houston (Velasquez).  With Nick Williams probably getting a call up in September, and Jorge Alfaro a year away, but close enough that the Phillies were listening on deals for Rupp, the Hamels trade is looking real good for the Phils.  To be fair, it was also a very good trade for Texas.  But for those who continue to believe that the Dodgers could have traded for Hamels without giving up Urias and/or De Leon, Corey Seager and/or Joc Pederson, plus…I do not believe are being realistic, and do not spend any time looking at other team’s prospects.
