The fans at Dodger Stadium will be treated to a game between the Minnesota Twins and the Los Angeles Dodgers when they take their seats on Monday.

Right hander Bartolo Colon will take the mound for the Twins to start this game. Colon is 2-9 this season with a 8.19 ERA.

It’ll be Hyun-Jin Ryu toeing the rubber for the Dodgers in this contest. Left hander Ryu is 3-6 with a 4.21 ERA so far this season.

Colon was ineffective against the New York Yankees on Tuesday in his debut with Minnesota – his 10th major-league team – as he surrendered four runs and eight hits in four innings. The 44-year-old publicly admitted after the game he was considering retirement if things did not go well in his next start, but manager Paul Molitor downplayed those concerns. “To think about retiring when you’re 44 years old and in baseball, it’s a pretty normal thing. We had a little conversation (Wednesday) morning. He’s fine physically. He’s scheduled to pitch on Monday, so he’ll prepare for that,” Molitor told reporters.

Ryu will make his first start since June 28 after spending the last three-plus weeks recovering from a bruised left foot. The 30-year-old South Korean yielded two runs and struck out eight in his last turn, a no-decision against the Los Angeles Angels, and will enter this outing having bypassed a rehab assignment – instead throwing only two simulated games. Ryu never has faced Minnesota but will try to improve on his 3-3 record and 4.56 ERA in nine interleague starts.

Oddsmakers currently have the Dodgers listed as 232-moneyline favorites versus the Twins, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Los Angeles Dodgers don’t appear to have many weaknesses, but they have been rumored to be in the market for starting pitching as the trade deadline approaches – a need that may have become more pronounced over the weekend. Hyun-Jin Ryu is expected to come off the disabled list while Clayton Kershaw is expected to go on it Monday as the Dodgers begin a three-game interleague series against the visiting Minnesota Twins.

Kershaw, who missed more than two months last year with a back issue, left Sunday’s start after two innings with tightness in his lower back, but Los Angeles still won for the 13th time in 15 games as Logan Forsythe delivered a walk-off single in the 10th inning of a 5-4 victory over Atlanta. Although the three-time Cy Young Award winner was relieved the symptoms were not the same as last year’s, the team made a determination to place him on the DL following an examination by team doctor Robert Watkins. While Los Angeles owns the best record in the majors (68-31) and can afford to be careful with its ace as it sports a 10 1/2-game lead in the National League West, Minnesota does not have the same luxury as it has alternated wins and losses in nine games since the All-Star break. The Twins dropped two of three over the weekend to Detroit, falling 2 1/2 games off the pace in the American League Central.

Los Angeles won its last outing, a 5-4 result against the Braves on July 23. Bettors who backed the Dodgers at -400 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (9) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Minnesota was a 9-6 loser on the road against the Tigers. Bettors on Detroit at 101 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (15) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
