As the Los Angeles Dodgers were inching closer to officially clinching a seventh consecutive National League West title, manager Dave Roberts was shuffling the deck with his pitching staff in effort to determine a postseason rotation and bullpen.

It began to take more shape once it was clear Rich Hill would return from a strained flexor tendon. However, Hill then failed to get out of the first inning in his start last week because of an MCL strain in his left knee.

It prompted an MRI, which did not reveal any structural damage, and thus has Hill in position to continue pitching so longer as he can tolerate discomfort.
