Dodgers look to fix rotation with Padilla out

Posted on: May 3, 2010 2:40 pm

Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times reports Dodgers starting pitcher Vicente Padilla is expected to be out until at least June with an irritated nerve in his right forearm.

And with original fifth start Charlie Haeger struggling, Joe Torre is trying to figure out which two starters can fill in.

John Ely, who will get another start Thursday, and Carlos Monasterios, who pitched well in Haeger's place on Saturday are the likely candidates.
