Dodgers Starter Placed On Injured List

The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed Walker Buehler on the 15-day injured list due to a forearm strain.

Buehler is a very important part of the Dodgers' rotation, so it certainly is bad news that he is going to have to miss time. He is having a little bit of a down year for his standards, however, as he sports a 6-3 record and 4.02 ERA. Even with the higher ERA, he still has a winning record, though.

Buehler, who is a two-time All-Star, will be hard to replace if he has to miss more than these next 15 days. Here's to hoping he can rejoin the Dodgers as soon as this stint on the IL passes, as the team is trying to maintain their division lead over the Padres.
