As wonderful as it is, even Opening Day is not impervious to injuries. Four players have hit the DL since yesterday and Scott Baker may be in for some bad news.

In case you missed them, we presented our first DL Graphs of the year yesterday. Expect more of the same each week!

Here's the latest injury breakdown:

  • Sore Elbow Lands Stauffer on DL | Padres.com
    Hours before the Padres opened their season against the Dodgers at Petco Park on Thursday, the team placed right-handed pitcher Tim Stauffer on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right elbow.
  • Linebrink to DL with Shoulder Injury | Twitter @LangoschMLB
    The Cardinals have placed reliever Scott Linebrink on DL, retroactive to March 30, with right shoulder capsulitis. St. Louis has added Victor Marte to the roster in Linebrink's stead.
