With Ted Lilly back from the DL and needing to make a corresponding roster move, word on the street has “pitcher” Todd Coffey going on the DL with a knee injury. Sure would hate to see us lose a quality vet like Coffey, but fortunately Ned knows just how to keep them around… In the meantime, I guess we’ll just muddle through with Josh Lindblom. Lilly will be making his 2012 debut after getting shelled in his only rehab start for Rancho Cucamonga.
Also making his 2012 and Major League debut will be one of the Padres top prospects, starting pitcher Joe Wieland, whom they acquired at the 2011 trade deadline from Texas.
At 7-1, the Dodgers are off to their best start since 1981 when they opened the season 9-1 on their way to a world championship.
