Guess how many games the Dodgers have missed due to the DL?

Tough loss last night. Rafael Furcal and Jon Garland are now on the disabled list. Ivan De Jesus Jr and Jon Ely are being called up.

Check out who's on the disabled list with Furcal and Garland -

Vicente Padilla
Blake Hawksworth
Juan Uribe
Jonathan Broxton
Hector Gimenez
Kenley Jansen
Hong-Chih Kuo
Marcus Thames

That's a total of ten Dodgers that are currently on the disabled list.

Bit by the injury bug -

Today the Dodgers used the disabled list for the 17th and 18th times this season, with a total of 13 players being shelved at some point. That includes five members of the bullpen, their starting second baseman, shortstop, third baseman and both halves of the intended left field platoon for a total of 357 missed games.

With all these injuries, it hasn't hurt the Dodgers bullpen that much. Since being brought up, Javy Guerra, Rubby De La Rosa, Scott Elbert and Josh Lindblom have combined to go 1-0 with two saves, a 1.47 ERA (3 ER/18.1 IP) and 16 strikeouts.
