Chad Billingsley is out for the remainder of the season after receiving news that he will have to undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.
The losing streak is finally over for the Dodgers, who were victorious Sunday 7-4 over the Orioles in a comeback effort.
The Dodgers entered Baltimore Friday, only to get rained out, lose a doubleheader on Saturday and then lose their starting pitcher (Billingsley placed on DL) for today’s finale.
The Dodgers have recalled Stephen Fife from Triple-A Albuquerque this morning after placing Chad Billingsley on the 15-day disabled list, the Dodgers reported via a press release.
Dodgers’ prospect Yasiel Puig was placed on the seven-day disabled list Saturday with a sprained left thumb.
It’s only 15 games into the season, but the Dodgers are officially on their first slump of the season, getting swept at home against the Padres Wednesday night in the series finale, 7-2.
When Carlos Quentin charged at (and injured) Zack Greinke last Thursday night, the Dodgers had seemed to unite, which had been thought to fill the team with momentum.
Just when the Dodgers felt that their pitching depth had solved the problem of losing Zack Greinke, they learned that they haven’t seen anything yet, losing Chris Capuano Tuesday before dropping the game 9-2.
Doubts about Chris Capuano should be put to the side, for now, as he’s primed for early season success beginning tonight at 7:10 p.m. against the Padres.
Tomorrow night the Dodgers will celebrate Taiwan Night, presented by Taiwan Tourism Bureau. The celebration will take place during the middle game of a three-game series against the Padres at 7:10 p.m.
