Monasterios to start once more for Padilla

Monasterios to start once more for Padilla

|
DENVER -- Disabled Opening Day starter Vicente Padilla came out of a 35-pitch bullpen session Friday in good shape Saturday, but Rule 5 Dodgers rookie Carlos Monasterios will make one more start in his place Tuesday night against the Phillies.

Pitching coach Rick Honeycutt said Padilla needs to have a simulated game, probably Tuesday, before he's ready to be activated after recovering from a bulging disk in his neck.

It will be the 11th start of the season for Monasterios. He will draw Kyle Kendrick as the opposing starting pitcher, one day after Roy Halladay starts for Philadelphia, one day before Roy Oswalt.

The Dodgers were able to win Monasterios' last start, Thursday in Milwaukee, against Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo.
