Chris Capuano left last night’s Dodgers game early, will get an MRI

Will the last uninjured Dodgers pitcher turn out the light please? Thanks.

Filling in for injured starter Zack Greinke, Chris Capuano left Tuesday’s game against the Padres in the top of the third inning due to a strained left calf.

“It’s a little sore. A strain, but not a full tear or anything like that,” Capuano said after the Dodgers fell to the Padres, 9-2, at Dodger Stadium. “I don’t anticipate it will be too long to heal.”

Thanks Dr. Capuano, but we’ll let the professionals determine what’s up. ¬†Capuano will get an MRI today or tomorrow to figure out what’s what.

If he does need some time on the DL, Ted Lilly will likely fill in. Rendering all that “what will the Dodgers do with Ted Lilly?” drama from a couple of days ago rather quaint. Note: you can never have too many pitchers lying around. Ever.
