Kuroda to 15 day DL...

Kuroda to DL with tendinitis and impingement in right shoulder

Shoulder injury to force Kuroda to DL
Dodgers hope to have right-hander back by end of June

CINCINNATI -- Dodgers starter Hiroki Kuroda will soon be placed on the 15-day disabled list with tendinitis and an impingement in his right shoulder.

The club will wait until after its series finale with the Reds to announce any roster moves, which will likely include the promotion of a reliever from Triple-A Las Vegas. Manager Joe Torre didn't say who the reliever would be, but hinted that Justin Orenduff is a strong possibility because he's on the 40-man roster.

Reliever Chan Ho Park is set to start for Kuroda on Saturday against the Indians, but if Park is needed to pitch in relief Thursday, the Dodgers would instead call up a starter. Torre did not mention the names of any starter candidates.

"We're going to wait and see until after today's game what our needs are going to be," Torre said Thursday morning. "It's going to be Park, but if we need him to win this game, things will change. We probably wouldn't start him Saturday if he pitches today, which means we bring in a starter instead of a reliever. That's why we're not making the decision until after the game."

Barring any setback, Kuroda should return to the rotation June 28 against the Angels.

"Again, that's a ways ahead and if everything is fine," Torre said.

Kuroda was sent home prior to Tuesday's series opener with the Reds after informing Torre that he was experiencing soreness in his right shoulder. He underwent an MRI exam and got a cortisone shot on Wednesday morning in Los Angeles with team physician Dr. Neal Ellattrache.

Kuroda had kept his condition quiet all season and didn't inform Torre until he arrived at Great American Ball Park on Tuesday afternoon. Torre sent him home immediately.
