Sounds like if Kuo can comeback Kershaw will probably start game 4. If not it'll probably be Maddux...
Clayton Kershaw might move into rotation against Phillies - Los Angeles TimesKuo coming back?
Left-handed reliever Hong-Chih Kuo, who missed the NLDS because of discomfort in his elbow, could be added to the NLCS roster.
Kuo threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Sunday and said he felt no pain. The final exam for his elbow will be a simulate game this morning.
Because Kuo was throwing on flat ground during the NLDS, Torre said he wasn't concerned about his conditioning.
\"His arm's in shape,\" Torre said.
Torre said that Kuo is the only player who wasn't on the NLDS roster that he is considering for the NLCS.
"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day!"

I get the reasoning behind Kershaw in the pen if Kuo can't go. I don't necessarily agree with it, but with the amount dangerous lefties they have in the lineup it makes to have two lefties in the pen.
Lowe can go on three days rest in game 4 if need be.
