Though the postseason begins next week, manager Dave Roberts has yet to announce who will be cracking the 25-man roster or who will be in the starting rotation. Here’s the latest news as to what’s going on with the team.
It’s been almost a week since we saw Kelly last, as he hasn’t pitched since September 18. According to Roberts, we won’t see him tonight or tomorrow.

This certainly does come at the wrong time. One of the main reasons the Dodgers went out and signed Kelly was due to his success in October.
