Bradley latest Dodger on DL

Associated Press


The Los Angeles Dodgers placed center fielder Milton Bradley on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of a torn ligament in the ring finger on his right hand. The move is retroactive to May 30.

It’s the fifth trip to the DL for the six-year veteran, who was injured Sunday while batting.

The Dodgers recalled rookie outfielder Jason Repko from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Bradley is hitting .298 with 26 RBIs and 10 home runs.

The defending N.L. West champions have seven players on the DL: third baseman Jose Valentin, outfielder Jason Grabowski, catcher Paul Bako and pitchers Odalis Perez, Elmer Dessens and Darren Dreifort.

Brazelton works out

Tampa Bay’s opening day starter Dewon Brazelton worked out for the first time since being reinstated from Major League Baseball’s restricted list, however he did not shed any light on why he went into hiding for three weeks after being demoted to the minors.

He said he likely will never publicly discuss details of what amounted to an unexcused absence, nor does he have any idea when he’ll pitch again.

“The Devil Rays called up right-hander Lee Gardner from Triple-A Durham and optioned RHP Seth McClung to Durham.

Arizona adds pitchers

The Arizona Diamondbacks added two pitchers, getting reliever Matt Herges in a trade with San Francisco and claiming starter Claudio Vargas off waivers from Washington.

The Diamondbacks sent minor league outfielder Doug DeVore to the Giants for Herges.

Clearing the bases

Baltimore’s Brian Roberts could return to the lineup as soon as Monday after injuring his shoulder earlier this week.

“The Oakland Athletics purchased right-hander Ryan Glynn’s contract from Triple-A Sacramento and started him against the Toronto Blue Jays.
