Josh Outman will be making his first start of the year as the Colorado Rockies start a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday.

Josh Outman will be making his first start of the year as the Colorado Rockies start a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night. After sweeping the Houston Astros earlier this week, the Rockies hope to continue their rebound from a rough early-May tumble in the standings.

Outman, 27, has made eight relief appearances for Colorado this year since being acquired before the season from the Oakland A's in the Seth Smith deal. He missed the 2010 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he posted a solid 3.70 ERA over 13 appearances (including nine starts) with Oakland last year.

The Rockies will have their work cut out for them against red-hot Dodgers starter Chris Capuano, though. The 33-year-old is 7-1 with a 2.14 ERA over his first ten starts of the season, and he's been especially dominant of late, posting a 1.34 ERA with 43 strikeouts and 14 walks over 47 innings in his past seven outings.

Game time/date: 6:40 p.m. MT, Friday, June 1

Location: Coors Field, Denver, CO

TV/Radio: ROOT Sports/850KOA
