That didn’t take long. Just one start after returning from the disabled list due to a bulging disk in his neck, the Dodgers have scratched Vicente Padilla from Sunday’s start against the Astros with a recurrence of the same injury.
According to the team’s official Twitter feed, rookie right-hander Carlos Monasterios will start in his place on Sunday.
Padilla missed a little over three weeks with the original injury and returned to allow three runs over four innings in a loss to the Padres on Monday night. The 32-year-old right-hander is 6-5 with a 4.07 ERA and 84/24 K/BB ratio over 16 starts this season. It wouldn’t be a stretch to think he could be done for the year.
