The Los Angeles Dodgers were dealt a bad hand. LA has to put one of their young stars on the Injured List, a speed bump they’ve encountered this season.

Los Angeles placed right-handed pitcher Bobby Miller on the 10-day injured list. LA’s decision to put Miller on the IL came with some corresponding moves that the team announced.

“The Dodgers have recalled LHP Nick Ramirez and RHP J.P. Feyereisen and placed RHPs Bobby Miller and Connor Brogdon on the injured list,” the team said on X.

Miller is ailing due to inflammation in his right shoulder. According to reporter Fabian Ardaya, no structural damage was found in Miller’s MRI.

So, if there’s any positive takeaway here, it’s certainly that.

The team also reportedly doesn’t view the injury to be anything serious. According to the LA Times, it’s not viewed as a “severe” injury, and there will be “no need for surgery or any kind of operation.

The 24-year-old Miller made his Major League debut on May 23, 2023. In a five-inning performance, he earned a win over the Atlanta Braves and recorded five strikeouts. Thus far in his short career, he’s thrown 136.0 innings, posted a 3.90 ERA, and tossed 137 strikeouts.

It’ll be a tough blow for the Dodgers to deal with. But it doesn’t sound like it’s anything they’ll need to worry about for the long run. Compared to other contenders, they’ve gotten off easy.
