The Padres have placed starter Tyson Ross on the disabled list due to a left shoulder subluxation — in other words, a partial dislocation of his left shoulder. Fortunately  the injury was suffered on his non-throwing shoulder, so his pitching shouldn’t be negatively impacted when he does return. According to MLB.com’s Corey Brock, Ross expected to toss a bullpen session today, but Padres management decided to play it safe. Padres manager Bud Black explained:

“The soreness has to decrease, and there’s a strengthening component to this. We’ve got to make sure he can swing the bat and have confidence that he can field his position,” Padres manager Bud Black said.

The subluxation occurred when Ross was at the plate and took a swing on Wednesday. In response to Ross going on the DL, the Padres recalled Thad Weber, a 28-year-old who has already bounced between the Majors and Triple-A Tucson. In his only Major League appearance on April 13, Weber allowed two runs in three and two-thirds innings.

    a couple years ago, the Padres had another pitcher, Dustin Moseley, with the same problem of dislocating his non-throwing shoulder while batting. It never was a problem when he pitched for the Yankees and Angels, obviously, since he didn’t bat. Is this a sign that it’s time for the DH in the national league, or a warning to NL clubs to check out the non-throwing shoulder of pitchers who have never swung a bat?

      The NL should have the DH but not for this reason. Does anyone really want to see pitchers bat?

        Yes.

        Yes, I do want to see pitchers hit.

        And I’m a Padres fan too.
