With Kenley Jansen's first major league win last night and Octavio Dotel's first win as a Dodger on Friday night, here's a look at all 17 Dodgers to get a victory this season, and the date of their first Dodger win of 2010:
|Pitcher||First Win of 2010|
Jon Link is the only pitcher currently on the roster without a win, and he hasn't pitched since getting recalled on Monday. In fact, he last pitched for Albuqerque on September 1. Link fits right in with today's starter, Carlos Monasterios, who hasn't pitched in a game since getting shelled by the Phillies on August 31.
Nelson Figueroa, the pride of Brandeis University, gets the start for the Astros today. He, like J.A. Happ, began his season with the Phillies, and was acquired by Houston in July. However, in the case of Figueroa, he was claimed off waivers on July 21. After beginning his Astros' career with no walks and 13 strikeouts in eight relief appearances, Figueroa was moved into the starting rotation, a move that so far has met with success. He is 2-1 with a 2.57 ERA in five starts, although his strikeout-to-walk ratio is a bit more ordinary 19-15.
Brad Ausmus, getting the start today in his final regular season game in his former baseball home of Houston, has three hits in eight at-bats, including a double, against Figueroa.
