Rich Hill will be the Dodgers' starter in Game 4 on Saturday.
Porcello has just two career starts against the Dodgers and none since 2011. He beat NY in Yankee Stadium in the pivotal third game of the Division Series, then won the third game of the ALCS in his hometown of Houston and got three outs in the series clincher, to the admiration of his idol Nolan Ryan and to the joy of teammates present and past. Despite his contributions to the Red Sox 2004 championship, the Boston-based former pitcher was not in attendance prior to Game 2.
Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora says no decision has been made on whether slugger J.D. Martinez will start Game 3 of the World Series.
Martinez rolled his right ankle on a double in Game 1.

Rapoport says Elway is "extremely angry" and all options, including releasing the second-year quarterback, are still on the table. We're going to look into it very, very seriously. "We will look into this and then make decisions as we go".
While David Ortiz, Pedro Martinez, Kevin Millar, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield, Keith Foulke, and Alan Embree are all expected to participate, Schilling, who memorably donned a bloody sock during his legendary victory in Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS while helping to propel the Red Sox past the New York Yankees, said he wasn't invited.
Cora said Martinez got treatment for his sore ankle during Thursday's travel day.
If Martinez plays the outfield, then either Betts, centre fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. or left fielder Andrew Benintendi would lose their spot. He opened two games previous year against the Astros, allowing two earned runs in 8 2/3 innings without getting a decision.
Cora flatly said Betts would not start at second base.
Red Sox star Mookie Betts has received plenty of praise for his play on the field this season.
