Dodgers News: Weekend Rotation Set For Series Against the Angels

These arms will be going in the Freeway Series.



The Dodgers and Angels are set to kick off a series in Los Angeles starting on Friday night. Fortunately for fans in LA, their team will not need to throw a bullpen game as anticipated with so many starters out.

Notably, the Angels will be without Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon for this series. Rendon is out for the season having hip surgery and Trout is trending towards being out for the year with the Angels so far out of the playoff picture. The Dodgers will also not get to see Shohei Ohtani on the mound. 

Here are those starter math-ups for the weekend Freeway Series:

Friday: David Price vs. Patrick Sandoval

The series kicks off with a match-up of 2 southpaws with Price and Sandoval. Price will try to build on his starts as the Dodgers stretch him out for rotation work. Sandoval is coming off of back-to-back outings in which he has pitched at least 5 innings and given up only 1 run.

Saturday: Julio Urias vs. Jaime Barria

Julio gets the ball for the Dodgers on Saturday looking for his 14thw in of the season. Over his last 3 starts, he has been charged with just 2 earned runs across 17.2 innings of work. He faces off against Jaime Barria who is making his third start of the year.

Sunday: Walker Buehler vs. Reid Detmers

Sunday should be a fun one as Walker Buehler goes up against Angels’ number 2 prospect Reid Detmers. He just gave up 6 runs in 4 innings of work making his MLB debut last Sunday. If the Dodgers are really going to jump on any starter this weekend, it should be Detmers

The Angels enter the series with a record of 55-54 and chase the Astros by 10.5 games in the AL West.

  1. For dumb Roberts! Joc started season slow had problem with wrists he started real slow average down to 160 went on disable list came back with Cubs started getting his average to 250 now with Braves he’s hitting 251 but 400 against lefthanders so he’s coming out of that mentality Stupid Roberts gave him about can’t hit left handed pitching Joc will finish with 25 + hrs 80 + rbis but next year he’ll have a breakout year .Roberts theory doesn’t work Pederson will get better he already has 2 hrs vs lefties with Braves.

    • You just can’t re-sign every player. You have to bring guys up from the minors. Someone has to go. This past year it was Kike and Joc. Soon a decision will have to be made about who to keep and how many between Buehler, Seager, Taylor and Bellinger. Who is replaceable from the farm? Who is asking to much? Who stays healthy etc

  2. Hated to see Joc go. He was a true team player. And then to be bounced by the Cubs in their “burn down the house” phase leading to the trade deadline–hope he settles in somewhere for 4 or 5 years this off season. I think he just had a 1 year deal.

  3. I experienced the 1969 Mets and this years edition of the Giants is very similar, especially after yesterday’s win. They have so much heart and never look beaten, something we don’t have especially after giving up on Kike and Joc and of course Verdugo. We should have offered the Red Sox Lux instead, at that time his value was as high as it is ever going to be.

  4. Watching the game friday was fun, angles beating the Dodgers with triple a guys..who would have thought that..Go angles.
