The Return of El Ladrón: Dodger 10, Angels 5
The Dodgers got their hacks in today, but I'm just not convinced they're going to do much of anything to any pitcher not named Colón or Shields.
The left-hander said he continued to experience shoulder pain a day after being pulled after five innings in the Angels' 7-5 victory because of irritation of the rotator cuff. Perez played catch, received treatment and was examined by physician Lugo Podesta. Perez said Podesta does not think the rotator cuff is damaged.
"We're going to see what type of damage I have in there," said Perez, 4-3 with a 2.96 earned-run average. "I hope not to have any damage, but for now it hurts."
Who's this guy Podesta anyway? Do they mean Jobe?
