Quote:
Manager Dave Roberts was succinct in summing up the Dodgers' decision to start Hyun-Jin Ryu in Thursday's National League Division Series opener against the Braves, pushing Clayton Kershaw back by a day.

"Game 1 is important," Roberts said. "So is Game 2."

Kershaw is one of the best pitchers of his generation, and he's taken the mound for Game 1 of the NLDS in each of the past five years. If the Dodgers are going to open the playoffs by handing the ball to someone else, that decision is going to turn heads -- especially after a down season by Kershaw's lofty standards.

So why Ryu before Kershaw? Roberts hit on two factors:

• Kershaw's been much better this season when he's been given extra time between starts. He owns a 3.21 ERA on four days of rest, compared to a 2.48 mark with five or more days.

• The Dodgers have no plans to start Kershaw on short rest in Game 4 this year. Because there are two scheduled off-days during the Division Series, he could start Game 5 on normal rest anyway.


Quote:
Charlie Culberson was an unheralded piece in last year's five-player, financially motivated deal with the Dodgers, and his acquisition left some wondering where he was going to fit in on Atlanta's crowded roster.

Shortstop Dansby Swanson, who was diagnosed with a torn ligament in his left hand last week, has not swung a bat since feeling discomfort after taking swings Saturday. He didn't work out with the team Wednesday at Dodger Stadium in preparation for Game 1 of the National League Division Series, and the club is not optimistic he will be ready before the NL Championship Series -- if it advances.

It means Culberson is on track to fill Swanson's spot and resume a familiar role. Last season, the utility man played shortstop for the Dodgers during the NLCS in place of injured shortstop Corey Seager.

Snoozer. Should have made this the early game, but LA.
