Los Angeles Dodgers
Rich Hill’s return was delayed a day due to rain. The Cubs and Dodgers were postponed on Monday, which pushes everything back a game.
Hill was out over a month with a blister and it wasn’t his first issue. In fact, he’s been a chronic sufferer and his condition has only worsened over the last two seasons, when, he says, Major League Baseball has changed the surface of its playing ball.
It would be really painful to see Hill get hurt again quickly so let’s hope for the best. Of course, he’s going to provide a big boost to the Dodgers’ staff and team as a whole, which has done a nice job to keep things together through all the injuries.
Chase Utley has been the latest Dodger to go to the DL, which doesn’t seem like the biggest deal considering he’s the only position player in the starting lineup (and even the top of the bench) to post a below average OPS.
Every other Dodger is at least average, including Max Muncy, whose 168 OPS+ leads the team.
The Cubs are still a half-game back of the Brewers in the NL Central but they have winning records over their last 10, 20 and 30 games and are the odds-on favorites to win the Central for a third consecutive season.
Mike Montgomery, who has been just splendid since joining the rotation after Yu Darvish’s injury, takes the ball on Tuesday. He has done everything to earn a permanent spot in the rotation and actually looks as good as any starter Joe Maddon has at his disposal.
Montgomery has gone exactly six innings in each of his last three starts and has given up exactly one run in each.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction: Cubbies.
Monty has thrown great and there’s got to be at least a little concern with Hill coming back, not just about getting another blister problem, but simply rust.
