Dodgers News: Adam Liberatore Hits DL with Left Forearm Tightness

Prior to Thursday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Dodgers placed left-handed reliever Adam Liberatore on the 10-day disabled list.

Recalled in his place was another left-handed reliever, Grant Dayton.

Liberatore has only pitched in four games at the big league level this season, allowing one earned run in 3 1/3 innings. He has logged 9 2/3 innings at triple-A Oklahoma City this season and allowed just one earned run there.

Over the last calendar year, Adam Liberatore has been bouncing on and off of the disabled list. This left forearm tightness might have more of an affect on Liberatore than it seems.

He is going to be flying back to Los Angeles to get examined for what might be a more serious issue.

With Liberatore hitting the disabled list, he joins fellow lefty Luis Avilan. Grant Dayton is the only left-handed reliever that the Dodgers will have in their bullpen unless Hyun-Jin Ryu is removed from the rotation.
