Dodgers Disable Furcal, Call Up DeJesus
Via damn near everyone, but I'll use Eric Stephen's account at True Blue LA, the Dodgers disabled Rafael Furcal with a broken thumb injured during a slide attempt in last night's game. Eric helpfully adds the following about his replacement on the 25-man roster, Ivan DeJesus, Jr.:
Additionally, because the option period for DeJesus was less than 20 days, it technically doesn't count as an option period and he gets major league service time as if he has been with the Dodgers for the last week. Between the majors and minors so far this season, DeJesus has four hits in 24 at-bats with four walks and 11 strikeouts.MSTI says he'll likely be out 4-6 weeks, which suggests a 60-day DL trip might be in the offing.
