 PHOENIX (AP) -The Los Angeles Dodgers placed right-hander Jason Schmidt on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with shoulder inflammation. The move was retroactive to Sunday.
Schmidt had an MRI Monday in Phoenix and there is no timeframe for his return. The team is going to give him a few days off to see if the irritation subsides.
``We are going to give it a few days to let it calm down. Hopefully it's just a short term thing,'' Dodgers manager Grady Little said.
Little said the Dodgers would recall right-handed reliever Chin-hui Tsao, who is 0-1 with a 2.25 ERA and two saves for Triple-A Las Vegas.
Little did not name a starter for Thursday at Colorado.
Schmidt, who signed a $47-million, three-year contract last winter, is 1-2 with a 7.36 ERA, and his velocity had dropped in his early-season outings.
Head athletic trainer Stan Conte said that Schmidt reported discomfort after his start against San Diego Saturday.
``It was just a lot more effort for me to get the ball to the plate,'' Schmidt said. ``It wasn't free and easy.''
Conte said Schmidt had elbow surgery in 2003 and shoulder surgery in 2000. But Conte said the latest inflammation does not appear to be related to Schmidt's past arm troubles.
``I don't want to be flippant about this, but I think we'll handle it,'' Conte said. ``Pitchers' shoulders are not an easy situation to predict.''
Schmidt said he was a little surprised when the team placed him on the disabled list. Asked if he agreed with the move, Schmidt said, ``That's a tricky question. I guess in a strange sort of way I would have to be in agreement with it, because if there is light at the end of the tunnel when we come out on the other side of this thing, I can get back to doing what I do best.''
