Chad Billingsley On DL With Right Elbow Pain

The Los Angeles Dodgers have sent pitcher Chad Billingsley to the disabled list with pain in his right elbow. Billingsley left during the fourth inning of Friday's game against the Miami Marlins with his team up 6-3 (the Dodgers would win 11-4).

An MRI on the elbow last night showed inflammation. Last night, Billingsley said:

"It's one thing about pitching. Every time you step out on the mound you never know what could happen. ...From what the doc told me it's just inflammation, and that's a relief for me ... I'm going to wake up tomorrow morning, get some treatment, and see where we're at."

The injury could be of some concern for Dodgers fans, as this Billingsley hit the DL in mid-July with similar problems.

Billingsley is 10-9 with a 3.55 ERA so far this season. In 149.2 innings pitched, he has struck out 128 batters while walking just 45.
