Add Mike Bolsinger to the list of pitchers the Dodgers do not expect to use as a starter Wednesday at Milwaukee. Hyun-Jin Ryu, Brandon McCarthy, Ross Stripling and Chris Taylor were already eliminated from consideration Saturday. One pitcher not yet eliminated: minor-leaguer Brock Stewart, who started the season at Single-A and has a 1.78 ERA over three different levels.
