— Player Notes
Advice: It would allow both Brett Anderson (who's currently scheduled to start Sunday) and Clayton Kershaw to receive an extra day of rest before their next outings. Brandon McCarthy is on the docket for Saturday at the moment. It's not clear whether Wieland would be up for just the one start or if he might stick around for a while. He's put up a 1.80 ERA and 14/1 K/BB ratio over his first 10 innings at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Advice: Wieland only allowed two hits while striking out five. He's won each of his first two starts, limiting opponents to a .139 average during that stretch. Wieland has nine games of big league experience on his resume, including a four-game stint with the Padres in 2014. He's the Dodgers' 18th-best prospect, according to MLB.com.
