Kuroda likely to rejoin Dodgers for LCS


It appears as if righthander Hideki Koruda will be added to the Dodgers' roster for the National League Championship Series.

Koruda was left off the Division Series roster after a small herniation of the cervical spine was found in his neck. Kurada had been struggling with neck pain at the end of the season.

He pitched in Arizona in front of manager Joe Torre and Torre indicated Kuroda could be ready for the LCS.

Torre did not announce a starting rotation during a media session tonight following the team's workout at Dodger Stadium.

Kuroda last pitched Sept. 28 in an 11-1 loss in which he allowed seven runs (three earned) in four innings.

He faced the Phillies once this season, allowing no runs and two hits over six innings in a no-decision in June.


After late-night starts and daytime weekday starts, the Phillies will face the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series with six of the potential seven games starting in prime time in the East.

TBS announced the complete schedule this afternoon. Chip Caray will handle play-by-play with analysts Ron Darling and Buck Martinez, and reporter Craig Sager.

Games 1 and 2 and 6 and 7, if necessary, are in Los Angeles. Games 3 and 4, and 5, if necessary, are in Philadelphia.

Game 1: Thursday, 8:07 p.m.

Game 2: Friday, 4:07 p.m.

Game 3: Sunday, 8:07 p.m.

Game 4: Monday,  8:07 p.m.
