Hyun-jin Ryu had his run of eight straight quality starts snapped on July 10 against the Rockies, and he gets a full 11 days rest in between then and the series opener in Toronto. Ryu is 3-2 with a 4.42 ERA in nine road starts this season, with 44 strikeouts and 22 walks in 55 innings. Josh Johnson has allowed 20 runs and 32 hits in 21⅓ innings over his last four starts, all Toronto losses.

Chris Capuano's last 10 starts since joining the rotation in May have been very hit or miss. In five starts he has allowed zero or one run, with two runs total in 31 innings, with 29 strikeouts and one walk. In the other five starts during that span, Capuano has allowed 28 runs in 22⅔ innings, with 15 strikeouts and 11 walks. Todd Redmond is a 28-year-old minor league journeyman who since joining the rotation has allowed five runs in nine innings over two starts, with 10 strikeouts, four walks and three home runs allowed.

Ricky Nolasco makes his fourth start as a Dodger in the series finale. He has allowed 26 runners to reach base in 17⅓ innings but so far only six have scored. He has made one career start against the Blue Jays, with two runs allowed in six innings, with nine strikeouts in a no-decision in 2009 in Toronto. Esmil Rogers, the former Rockies hurler, began the season in the Toronto bullpen but since joining the rotation for good has a 3.88 ERA and has allowed two earned runs or less in five of his eight starts. The one bugaboo for Rogers is his eight home runs allowed in just 46⅓ innings over those last eight starts.
