Dodgers add ninth, 10th players to DL

By C. Trent Rosecrans

Rafael FurcalThe Dodgers disabled list has reached double-digits, as the team placed shortstop Rafael Furcal (strained oblique) and pitcher Jon Garland (right shoulder inflammation) on the 15-day disabled list.

The Dodgers have the most players on the disabled list in the majors, but infielder Juan Uribe (hip) and outfielder Marcus Thames (quadriceps) are expected to return soon. Starter Vicente Padilla has had a setback with pain in his neck, so he wasn't called up.

The Dodgers called up infielder Ivan De Jesus Jr. and right-hander John Ely.

Furcal returned from the DL on May 22 after suffered a fractured left thumb and was hitting just .225/.244/.300 with one home run and a stolen base in 10 games since his return. He's hitting just .212/.246/.273 in 17 games overall.

Garland is 1-5 with a 4.33 ERA in nine starts. He's pitched 54 innings this year and could lose money because of his injuries. Garland is making $3.5 million this year, but would received another $3.525 million if he pitches between 150-190 innings this season and a vesting option for 2012 at $8 million if he pitches 190 innings this year.

Also on the 15-day disabled list for the Dodgers are relievers Jonathan Broxton (elbow), Blake Hawksworth (groin), Kenley Jansen (shoulder) and Hong-Chih Kuo (illness). Catcher Hecotr Gimenez (knee) is on the 60-day disabled list.

Los Angeles has just one pitcher on the 40-man roster who isn't either in the majors or on the major or minor league disabled list. That pitcher, Luis Vasquez, is currently at Class A Rancho Cucumonga.

The Twins currently have eight players on the disabled list, including two (Joe Mauer and Tsuyoshi Nishioka) on the 60-day disabled list.

Dodgers still shopping

The Dodgers made today's big news, signing free-agent starter Jon Garland, but the team isn't finished spending.

On the conference call announcing the move, Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said he's still looking for a bat and a reliever. He's also needs to decide on what to do at catcher, according to this tweet from Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times .

The Dodgers were expected to be hamstrung by the divorce of owner Frank McCourt, but they've re-signed Ted Lilly and Hiroki Kuroda in addition to signing Garland.

It's unlikely the Dodgers can afford one of the higher-priced free agents like Carl Crawford, Jayson Werth or Adam Dunn.

The Dodgers have three catchers on their 40-man roster, but could choose to non-tender Russell Martin. The team also has A.J. Ellis and Hector Gimenez on the 40-man roster. The team didn't offer arbitration to free-agent catcher Rod Barajas this week.
