The Los Angeles Dodgers will be closing out their home stand vs. the San Diego Padres beginning on Thursday. This is the Dodgers final home stand before the 2016 All-Star Break.

Despite Clayton Kershaw (back) still being out due to injury the Dodgers have finally received some much needed help in their rotation. Pitcher Brandon McCarthy made his return last week vs. the Colorado Rockies, and will make his second start vs. the Padres.
