Wow, after reading that article it looks like this could really be happening. I always expected him to get the call around the All Star break but sooner is better than later. B-)

Let's just hope Yahoo doesn't spoil this. :-t

Loaiza is officially on the DL. 5th starter spot opens up on May 17th, Loaiza comes off on the 18th. Torre says he wants to keep Guo in the bullpen. Other 25 man roster option is Chan Ho Park. Kershaw could get the call, but Schmidt would need to be moved from the 15 day to 60 day DL. With all the nonsense coming out of Torre's mouth of late, my guess is that Kershaw is going to get the May 17th start. There's a good chance that he will get sent back down after making a start or two, no matter how well he does in those starts. Atleast he will get added to the Yahoo database if he does indeed get called up. In my keeper league we are allowed to draft players not in the Yahoo database and must keep a roster spot open for them. Once our draft is over, we can then only use the Yahoo database to add players from. I drafted Kershaw and have a roster spot open for him.

I don't think so. If they do they won't be able to limit his innings like they are doing now (he is pitching in relief). Also he will be worn out by the end of the year and they risk way to many innings piling up if they make the playoffs. There is to much risk right now, they need to give it to at least the break. Not to mention he has barely over 50IP above Low A.

Agreed......I'd be the wrong decision to call him up now. Which means it's likely exactly what the Dodgers will do.

My take is he won't be promoted to fill in for Loaiza, but it's more of a distinct possibility given Joe's penchant of having two long relievers in Kuo and Park on hand, especially because the Dodger starters haven't consistently eaten the innings to go longer into games. I think the smarter thing to do is call up Jonathan Meloan, move him back to the pen (even though the Dodgers prefer to work him as a SP, but the results haven't quite been there), and bring up Kuo/Park (preferably Kuo) back into the rotation.
