Dodgers Give Ramon Troncoso Day Off

For the sixth game out of 20 since he rejoined the team after the birth of his daughter, Ramon Troncoso was given a day off today.  Troncoso is tied for the major league lead with 14 games pitched this year, joining Fernando Nieve of the Mets, who tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings in today's game.  Troncoso joins Ron Perranoski in 1967 as the only Los Angeles Dodger pitchers to pitch in 14 of the club's first 21 games, one more than the seasonal-record-setting Mike Marshall had in 1974.  Yesterday, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times asked Troncoso what he thought of pitching so much:

Yesterday, I told Troncoso he was on pace to pitch in over 100 games. "I hope so," he said. #DrNealElAttrache

Oh yeah, in the game the Dodgers lost to the Mets 7-3, finishing their road trip at 2-7.
