Dodgers starting pitcher Carlos Frias pitched well on short notice, giving up one earned run on one hit while walking none and striking out two over four innings in a 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks. Understandably held to a modest pitch count, Frias retired 12 of 13 batters faced -- giving up a solo home run to Paul Goldschmidt in the second inning. The Dodgers have been cautious with Frias, limiting his workload since his return from the 60-day disabled list. While Frias may not receive another start on the season, there's still time for the right-hander to secure a role in the bullpen.
Dodgers pitcher Carlos Frias will start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. Zack Greinke was scratched due to calf soreness, and the team has opted to turn to Frias to start in his place rather than Ian Thomas or Joe Wieland. Frias made his first appearance with Los Angeles in close to three months Sunday against Pittsburgh, tossing two scoreless innings with two hits allowed and zero strikeouts (25 pitches). It seems likely it will end up being a bullpen game for the Dodgers.
