Career stats

In the shortest start of his career Monday in Phoenix, Pelfrey served up six runs on seven hits, recording just four outs and needing 51 pitches to escape the first inning. He will look to do better against a Dodgers team that has hit him at a .341 clip in two career starts.

Career stats

Monasterios is up in the fifth-starter roulette, replacing James McDonald, who replaced John Ely who replaced Charlie Haeger. He's made six emergency starts, but his ERA as a reliever is almost four runs lower, which is why L.A. prefers him out of the 'pen.
