Dodgers put Schmidt on 15-day disabled list
Advertiser StaffPHOENIX The Los Angeles Dodgers placed right-hander Jason Schmidt on the 15-day disabled list today with shoulder inflammation. The move was retroactive to Sunday.
Schmidt had an MRI Monday in Phoenix and there is no timeframe for his return. The team is going to give him a few days off to see if the irritation subsides.
"We are going to give it a few days to let it calm down. Hopefully it's just a short term thing," Dodgers manager Grady Little said.
The Dodgers have not made a corresponding roster move and Little did not name a starter for Thursday at Colorado. Schmidt is 1-2 with a 7.36 ERA.
