First Penny, Now Kuroda?

Quite possibly.  From Dylan Hernandez at the LA Times:

The news went from bad to worse for the Dodgers on Tuesday, as they put Brad Penny on the 15-day disabled list and sent Hiroki Kuroda to Los Angeles to undergo a shoulder examination similar to the one Penny had a day earlier.

Kuroda will have an MRI exam this morning, making him unavailable to make his scheduled start tonight in Cincinnati. If Kuroda is cleared by team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache to resume pitching immediately, he will start at Dodger Stadium on Saturday when the Dodgers play host to Cleveland, Manager Joe Torre said.

Can this get any worse?  Ugh.


  1. I don’t know if anyone had noticed but Brad Penny is not worth all the money he gets or deserves the hype. He is a hot and cold pitcher, he is not consistent. Aside from last year he has not proven himself. I can only liken him to Kevin Brown(remember him?). Always hurt and I hope the Dodgers get rid of him. They don’t need his overrated arse.
