Dodger manager Joe Torre indicated Saturday that pitcher Brad Penny was likely out for the remainder of the season, according to published reports.
“I can’t think Penny is going to come back,” said the Dodgers manager. “It’s nothing anybody has said. It’s off what happened this year. Coming off the DL, it’s been a slow process. He had only one rehab start, but it just seems it doesn’t feel right to him.”
A buildup of scar tissue that was spotted during a recent MRI. During his rehab, Penny has not returned to original form and was recently shelled for three home runs (six runs in total) over three innings. Definitely not the Brad Penny we remember from earlier in the season.
