Kuroda Might Not Start Saturday

Dodgers pitcher Hiroki Kuroda might be scratched from his scheduled start Saturday against the Diamondbacks, apparently because of a strained left side muscle. Eric Stults was scratched from his scheduled start for Triple-A Albuquerque in case a roster move is needed. Kuroda met with manager Joe Torre after a brief workout Friday to discuss whether he would start. Kuroda, who apparently suffered the injury while beating the Padres and ace Jake Peavy Opening Day, loosened up with some long toss four hours before Friday’s game and moved to the bullpen to throw off the mound, but made only four throws before shutting it down. – Ken Gurnick

Noooo :'(

Not good! Kuroda is our best starter (and the only one who beat Phi in the NLCS), and as much as I like Stults he’s no Kuroda. He did pitch a 4-hit CG shut-out against a stagnant Chi Wh Sox offense last year, but on his very next start he got yanked early (I want to say in the 4th) after being charged with 4 or 5 runs. Too much freakin’ potential (not enough consistency)!
