The disabled list has been nothing new to the Dodgers this season, but a few of our pitchers might be back in the bullpen sooner than we thought.

Ryu hasn’t had much playing time after he was out for recovery on shoulder surgery followed by elbow irritation and Brandon McCarthy was placed on the DL with right hip soreness after he walked 15 players and hit two others in early August. Both will be stretching it out on Tuesday for scheduled simulated games. Don’t get too excited though, Ryu’s simulated game is more of a status check and will unlikely return this season.

In July, Alex Wood underwent surgery on his left elbow, but is expected to be reinstated on Tuesday. So far, in this season Wood has an ERA of 3.99 in 56.1 innings pitched.

In other news, Scott Kazmir is still battling blister issues… ring a bell? Hopefully, he will return some time this season; however, there is a chance he’s moved to the 60-day DL to make room for Wood. We will have to wait and see! And oh yeah, Trayce Thompson will begin baseball activities very soon! Who knows if he’ll make an appearance this season, but one can hope!

    Would put Kazmir on 60 day and bring back Wood but he is not an incredible talent either….McCarthy when healthy can be very good but seems to be mental. Not sure he is a championship caliber player in the crunch. And he gets hurt all of the time…

    Thompson cannot get enough at bats to be effective and Toles and Segedin fill in nicely from the right side Plus Kendrick in Left has worked very well this year. There will be one helluva jam next year at all positions with very good talent fighting for very few roster spots. Hopefully if we have actual Rotation type pitchers we can get a normal bench count. Right now its a couple of guys and all bullpen when they are down to 25 man roster.
