NL West: Dodgers place Brandon McCarthy on DL

Check out what’s going on in the National League West.

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Arizona Diamondbacks Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers have placed Brandon McCarthy on the disabled list for shoulder soreness after the starter dislocated his left shoulder in a freak workout accident.

While the injury is on his non throwing shoulder, the team is taking the safe route. McCarthy was working with a 3.10 ERA so far this season, walking only nine batters and striking out 25 over 29 innings. Relief pitcher Adam Liberatore has been called up to fill the empty roster spot...did we mention he as a 0.93 ERA? Yeah, that’s pretty solid.

McCarthy is the 15th Dodger to hit the DL this season. Yikes.
