Zack Greinke‘s fractured collarbone wasn’t the only injury suffered during last week’s Dodgers-Padres dust-up.
Chris Capuano was placed on the disabled list yesterday with a strained calf and the left-hander revealed that what was a minor injury got aggravated when all hell broke loose after Carlos Quentin charged the mound on Greinke.
Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that Capuano made the calf injury worse by sprinting in from the bullpen to join the fracas. That didn’t stop him from relieving Greinke and didn’t even stop him from starting in Greinke’s place Tuesday, but it went horribly and Capuano exited after allowing five runs in two innings.
“During the fight, I definitely felt the calf was sore,” Capuano told Gurnick. “I pitched in that game and didn’t feel it, but probably from the adrenaline of pitching.” And now he’s on the DL with what’s being called a partial calf tear, opening the door for Ted Lilly to rejoin the Dodgers’ rotation.
