And Lowe is probably owned at this point (Kershaw is probably owned as well considering his last couple of starts). I wouldnt be excited to plug in Penny or Kuroda for that stretch, even though you are going against woeful offenses.
You forgot Billingsley. What Yoda is trying to say is trade for Billingsley.
Seriously, I'd strongly advise Billingsley. The rest of the Dodger rotation is kind of an odd bunch. Derek Lowe could be a potentially good option down the stretch but one thing to keep in mind is that his sinker hasn't been that effective and is giving up his fair share of homeruns. Penny and Kuroda are still watch list material in my book but either could make for a potentially good spot start. Kershaw is not quite the biggest wild card but judging off of his last time out, if Kershaw's control improves, he could be upping his pitch count and might go 6-7 innings. Effectiveness won't be assured but the upside alone makes him worth stashing. So, Billingsley is a must-have, Lowe & Kershaw are worth stashing while Penny and Kuroda are worth keeping an eye on. I haven't considered Schmidt personally just because the timetable for a potential return has been iffy in forever and a day now.
