The Dodgers host the Red Sox on Sunday night and will do so without Andre Ethier, who is 5-for-33 (.152) with 10 strikeouts against Boston starter Jake Peavy in his career. Though it should be noted that Ethier hasn't faced Peavy since 2009.
Since returning from the disabled list on June 19, Capuano had pitched to Federowicz in every start, and has pitched to Federowicz in 13 of his 19 starts this season. But Capuano frankly hasn't pitched well enough to warrant a personal catcher, so he throws to Ellis in Sunday's series finale.
Federowicz started once already in this series anyway, Friday night after A.J. Ellis caught both Wednesday's night game and Thursday's day game in Miami. With another day-night combination coming Tuesday and Wednesday against the Cubs, Federowicz figures to get another start in one of those games, likely Wednesday with Clayton Kershaw going Tuesday.
