Also following the rainout is word on who was supposed to be Sunday’s scheduled starter, Brandon McCarthy. McCarthy reportedly tweaked his shoulder in the weight room late last week, which originally led to him swapping starts with Kershaw over the weekend.
It is now reported that the team does not know if McCarthy will be making the start against Pittsburgh on Monday.
Although the injury is not serious, the team does not want to risk the “tweak” becoming a lingering issue.
Finally, Bill Shaikin of the LA Times reported that since Sunday was supposed to be the final game of the KTLA and Sports Net LA partnership, they will reschedule to add another game at a later date.
Today was scheduled to be last KTLA/SportsNet LA simulcast. I'm told KTLA will air another #Dodgers game. No game picked yet.
