Wed, 6/17 - @ SF
Tue, 6/23 - vs. COL
Then a two start week @TEX and vs. BAL

Per rotoworld:

Kelvim Escobar will be moved to the bullpen due to his lack of arm endurance, according to manager Mike Scioscia.
Scioscia said that Escobar's shoulder just doesn't have the stamina it needs to be a starting pitcher. He'll be throwing out of the bullpen the rest of the season. Matt Palmer will return to the rotation and start Friday. He was 5-0 with a 4.06 ERA and 1.15 WHIP before he lost his spot in the rotation and his fantasy value skyrockets once again. Escobar will need a few more days rest and then be available from pen in the middle of next week, according to Scioscia.

Ouch. Terrible news for those fantasy owners who believed Escobar could serve nicely as a #3 SP with plenty of upside.

knowing Mike Scoscia's loyalty to his players manifested from his Italian roots, its doubtful.

I give up, I'm releasing him. There's no gaurantee that he'll stay healthy.
