6 Comments

Brandon League has continued to feel discomfort in his right shoulder. As a result, the Dodgers will shut him down from throwing for the next several days, MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick reports. League threw a bullpen on Wednesday after which he complained of discomfort in his shoulder. He played catch early on Sunday and still felt it.

League, who turns 32 years old on Monday, bounced back from a tough 2013 campaign with a solid 2014 for the Dodgers. He finished with a 2.57 ERA and a 38/27 K/BB ratio in 63 innings.

The Dodgers attempted to trade League over the winter, but nothing ever materialized. The right-hander is owed $7.5 million for the 2015 season and could potentially vest a player option for ’16 depending on how many games he finishes this season.
