NBC SportsLandon Knack allowed three runs in 4 1/3 innings and got a no-decision against the Phillies on Monday.

Knack gave up six hits, walked one and struck out five. Knack had started in all seven of his appearances for the Dodgers this year, but Anthony Banda was used as an opener on Thursday. There was some logic to using Banda with left-handed hitters Kyle Schwarber and Bryce Harper due to bat in the first inning, but he allowed a solo home run to Trea Turner. Knack had a tough time with Brandon Marsh as he surrendered a solo home run to Marsh in the second inning and an RBI triple in the sixth inning. It's unclear how the Dodgers might use Knack in the second half of the season with pitchers that could return from the injured list and the trade deadline approaching.

NBC SportsLandon Knack will make a bulk relief appearance on Thursday against the Phillies.

It'll be Anthony Banda serving as Los Angeles' opener on Thursday evening in Philadelphia. It's not exactly an appealing matchup for streaming purposes, but Knack is capable of piling up enough strikeouts to be intriguing for fantasy managers, especially in deeper mixed leagues. He figures to replace Tyler Glasnow in the Dodgers' starting rotation for at least a few weeks moving forward.

NBC SportsDodgers placed RHP Tyler Glasnow on the 15-day injured list with lower back tightness.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that Glasnow's back tightened up on him Sunday just a few days after allowing five runs over six innings last Friday against the Brewers. Roberts elaborated that he hopes it's only a minor issue and that Glasnow could be back shortly after next week's All-Star break. However, we all know back issues can be tricky. The 30-year-old right-hander has been phenomenal in his Dodgers debut and obviously won't pitch in next week's Midsummer Classic. It'll most likely be Landon Knack taking his spot in Los Angeles' starting rotation for now.
