The Pirates have come ashore in Los Angeles. These Pirates are 57-55 on the year. Their starting pitcher tonight is Ivan Nova, newly acquired from the Yankees. Nova is a right hander with an 8-6 W-L record on the season and a 4.83 ERA.
The Dodgers will counter with Ross Stripling, who is 3-3 with a 3.79 ERA. Given that this will be his tenth start on the year, he almost has to be counted as a regular starter at this point, to go along with Kenta Maeda, Scott Kazmir, and Julio Urias. Facts are facts. Those four are the pitchers with the most 2016 starts who are not currently on the disabled list.
