Chris Capuano, Jeff Kellogg

Will the last uninjured Dodgers pitcher turn out the light please? Thanks.

Filling in for injured starter Zack Greinke, Chris Capuano left Tuesday’s game against the Padres in the top of the third inning due to a strained left calf.

“It’s a little sore. A strain, but not a full tear or anything like that,” Capuano said after the Dodgers fell to the Padres, 9-2, at Dodger Stadium. “I don’t anticipate it will be too long to heal.”

Thanks Dr. Capuano, but we’ll let the professionals determine what’s up.  Capuano will get an MRI today or tomorrow to figure out what’s what.

If he does need some time on the DL, Ted Lilly will likely fill in. Rendering all that “what will the Dodgers do with Ted Lilly?” drama from a couple of days ago rather quaint. Note: you can never have too many pitchers lying around. Ever.

    I was unaware that Padres’ fans practice Vodou. Beware Ioa, Dodger pitchers.

    Missed this one, I was watching that kid in Atlanta, the one pitching for Venters, shredding his hammy during a windup. The most fragile position in sports these days.

    Jason Marquis hit Justin Sellers high and tight last night. Sellers made it to 1st base without breaking Marquis’ collarbone.

    Some facts from last night that folks might find interesting.

      And Brandon League hit Kyle Blanks in the 9th inning, your point?

        Point is Carlos Quentin’s garbage.

        You’re cute. Are you gong to follow me around all season?

        Figured it was the other way around. You find me “cute” after all.

    Marquis hit him with a breaking ball…and didn’t run his mouth like little Greinke.
