LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers will turn to Carlos Frias for their series opener against the Diamondbacks on Friday, after the rubber-armed right-hander made a couple of relief appearances this season.

Frias last pitched Monday in relief, the second of back-to-back appearances out of the bullpen, totaling 2⅓ scoreless innings.

In his brief major league career, Frias has had more success at Dodger Stadium — a 1.90 ERA, 2.67 FIP, 18 strikeouts and four walks in 23⅔ innings — than on the road — 13.91 ERA, 5.41 FIP, 13 strikeouts and four walks in 11 innings — though the bulk of the difference can be seen in his two career starts.

Sept. 3, 2014 vs. Nationals (at Dodger Stadium): six scoreless innings, four baserunners, four strikeouts

Sept. 17, 2014 vs. Rockies (at Coors Field): two outs recorded, eight runs, 10 hits in 11 batters faced

In two starts and one relief appearance this season with Triple-A Oklahoma City, Frias was 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA, with 15 strikeouts and no walks in 12⅔ innings.

Rubby De La Rosa is making his first start at Dodger Stadium since July 31, 2011, a start in which he left after four innings and had Tommy John surgery shortly after.
