    Dodgers have ‘strong interest’ in Yu Darvish

    The Dodgers lost Clayton Kershaw yesterday. For how long we do not know, but he has missed a lot of time in the past with previous back injuries so it’d be somewhat optimistic to assume that he’s going to hit the disabled list for ten days, come back and be the Clayton Kershaw of six days ago without any muss or fuss. L.A. has also lost Brandon McCarthy to the DL, so while their division lead is comfortable at the moment, there could be some rough waters ahead.

    Paul Sporer Tuesday's slate offers one of the best home streamers on the season plus two young flamethrowers. The Dodgers get a lot of attention offensively as they look to pick on a fan favorite. Pitching Pitchers to stream Jhoulys Chacin (R), 23 percent ownership in ESPN leagues, San Diego Padres vs. New York Mets: You might not have noticed, but Chacin has been a beast at home this year. He's got a 1.94 ERA, .188 AVG, and 5-2 record at Petco this year. He has gone six innings or more in eight of his last nine starts. He's also toting a 53% groundball rate this year and if he's able to impose that upon the Mets, it will suit him well as they thrive on the flyball (and subsequently the home
