Dodgers reliever Brandon League is headed to the disabled list

Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles reports that Dodgers reliever Brandon League “felt discomfort” in his shoulder when he tried throwing Tuesday and will undergo an MRI exam.

League was shut down about two weeks ago with shoulder pain and was trying to resume a throwing program, but this setback means he’s headed for the disabled list even if the MRI exam reveals nothing major.

League allowed zero home runs in 63 innings last season, posting a 2.57 ERA after struggling in 2013, and with Kenley Jansen also on the disabled list to begin the season the Dodgers’ bullpen will be very short-handed early.
