During spring training, much was made of the Dodgers’ unusual surplus of starting pitchers. However, less than one month into the season, they are proving the old adage that you can never have enough.

According to Pedro Moura of the Orange County Register, the Dodgers have placed Stephen Fife on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder bursitis. Matt Magill has been called up from Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding roster move and will start tonight against the Brewers. No word on whether the Dodgers considered placing a call to Sandy Koufax first, but it might not be much longer before they run out of options.

Incredibly, Magill will be the ninth starting pitcher for the Dodgers in the first 23 games of the season. This lengthy list includes Zack Greinke, Chad Billingsley, and Chris Capuano, who are all on the disabled list.

      “Karma.”

      You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    9 starting pitcher in 23 games has to be a record, right?

    Big deal, the bluejays never had any decent pitchers, at least the dodgers had at least one

    The Dodgers are a joke. Maybe these pitchers got mugged in the parking lot by Dodger fans.
