To say that Scott Kazmir‘s rehab start for Oklahoma City on Wednesday evening “didn’t go so well” would probably be a bit of an understatement.

Early reports from the clubhouse after the game indicated that Kazmir was suffering the same types of neck and rib cage pain that initially landed him on the disabled list last month. The 32-year-old southpaw was removed from the playoff opener against Nashville with just two outs in the first inning. During the struggle, Kazmir hit two batters, walked two more, and gave up a home run before making way to righty Lisalverto Bonilla. OKC would make an effort to battle back from the early deficit, but eventually fell to the Sounds, 10-7.

Monday I wrote a nice little piece about my thoughts on the trade deadline, that the Dodgers did pretty well, and ended it with, “Let’s go.” Well, the Dodgers went — and not in a direction any of us thought they would go.

Many fans are wondering at what point the Dodgers will begin stirring the pot as the hot stove season quickly approaches, yet if the team can bring back a productive Yasiel Puig next week, and a healthy Brandon McCarthy, Hyun-jin Ryu and Andre Ethier sometime in July, the club may be in a position to transform the roster without even having to make a trade.

Triggered by a taxed bullpen and the need for an emergency starter, the Dodgers added right-hander Mike Bolsinger and lefty reliever Luis Avilan to the 25-man roster on Monday, and may be prepared to employ several other personnel changes as a number of players are on the doorstep of returning from injury.
