Dodgers News: Rich Hill to Start Game 4, Other Starters To Be Announced

Packed into the media room at Dodgers Stadium, Dave Roberts started to address how the Dodgers are going to approach the playoffs. While rosters may not be set in stone, we do know that d is going to be the starter for game four, if it comes to that.

Dave Roberts indicated that Hill will get the bump in what could be a very important game depending on how things go. Hill has only thrown 5.2 innings since he went down with an injury in June. Through those 5.2 innings, he has allowed just 1 earned run and struck out 11.

“We’re comfortable with Rich going four innings….. that’s where going 8 in the bullpen make sense.” – Dave Roberts

While the Dodgers do know their starters for games 1 through 3, Roberts is keeping that himself for now. He did say that wherever the team is playing will NOT factor in his decision making though, which was strange.  Walker Buehler and Hyun-jin Ryu have been notably better at home, especially as of late.

Rich Hil may also be used out of the bullpen in game 1 an 2 if the situation calls for it.
