The Dodgers have placed starting pitcher Chad Billingsley on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 8, with right elbow inflammation. The club made the announcement Tuesday afternoon.
Billinglsey was scratched from a scheduled start Sunday when he informed the Dodgers that he had some pain in his elbow. In fact, he had the pain for some time, he just hadn't told anyone about it. This fact reportedly made manager Don Mattingly unhappy.
Billingsley had an MRI on Monday, which showed no major injury. Still, there was inflammation, and it was enough to land him on the disabled list.
Billingsley, 27, is 4-9 with a 4.30 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 100 strikeouts in 104 2/3 innings.
