Dodgers starting pitcher Kenta Maeda will remain on the disabled list for another week, manager Dave Roberts indicated before Wednesday’s game against the Giants.
The Dodgers set their rotation for a four-game series this weekend against Miami: Hyun-Jin Ryu on Thursday, Alex Wood on Friday, Julio Urias on Saturday and Brandon McCarthy on Sunday. After a day off on Monday, Clayton Kershaw will start on Tuesday against St. Louis. Maeda should follow him a day after.
“Some time in that St. Louis series, we’ll get Kenta back in the rotation,” Roberts said.
Maeda was shut down with tightness in his hamstring, a minor condition that did not prevent him from throwing 8 1/3 innings last week against Pittsburgh. After a shoddy start to the season, Maeda has posted a 2.21 earned-run average in his last three outings.
