Dodgers transferred RHP Brandon League from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Apr 26 - 2:27 PM

Dodgers placed RHP Brandon League on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

League was diagnosed last week with posterior inflammation in his right (throwing) shoulder and will miss at least the first two months of the 2015 regular season.
Apr 5 - 6:42 PM

Brandon League is expected to be sidelined for the next two months and is attempting to avoid surgery on his ailing shoulder.

League expects to begin the season on the 60-day disabled list, and may be out considerably longer. He can safely be written off in all but the deepest of NL-only formats.
Mar 28 - 12:24 PM

Brandon League will be shut down for the next three weeks due to right posterior shoulder inflammation.

League met with two different doctors on Friday after undergoing an MRI on Wednesday. The good news is that there doesn't appear to be any structural damage, but League will surely begin the season on the disabled list and manager Don Mattingly indicated that he expects League to be out at least a couple of months.
Mar 27 - 6:40 PM

Brandon League will get a second opinion about his right shoulder Friday from Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

League underwent an MRI on the shoulder Wednesday, but the Dodgers haven't revealed the results. The 32-year-old right-hander has been dealing with shoulder discomfort for much of March and obviously won't be ready for Opening Day. He's owed $8.5 million in 2015.
Mar 26 - 12:53 PM

Brandon League will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder Wednesday.

It's a troubling development for the Dodgers. League has been dealing with shoulder soreness this spring and didn't feel right during his bullpen session Tuesday. He now appears likely to begin the year on the disabled list.
Mar 25 - 11:54 AM

Brandon League (shoulder) could pitch in a Cactus League game as early as Thursday.

League threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Sunday with no ill effects. He'll throw another bullpen Tuesday before getting into a game. League has been dealing with some soreness in the shoulder, but he expects to be ready for the start of the season.
Mar 22 - 3:00 PM

Brandon League (shoulder) is slated to throw a bullpen session on Sunday.

League received the go-ahead for mound work after playing catch with no issues. The reliever has been dogged by a shoulder issue for a week, but an anti-inflammatory injection and he expects to be ready for Opening Day. League could be in the mix for saves while Kenley Jansen (foot) is out.
Mar 20 - 1:40 PM

Brandon League (shoulder) expects to be ready for the beginning of the regular season.

League has been shut down for several days due to shoulder soreness, but he got an anti-inflammatory injection on Monday and will resume throwing Thursday. League will likely work in middle relief for the Dodgers this season, but this is a bullpen without clearly defined roles at the top. Kenley Jansen (foot) may miss all of April.
Mar 19 - 12:24 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is hopeful that Brandon League (shoulder) will be able to play catch on Thursday.

League has been bothered by shoulder soreness of late and recently received an anti-inflammatory injection to address his symptoms. The Dodgers will see how he feels Thursday before deciding the next step. There's a lot of uncertainty in this bullpen right now.
Mar 18 - 12:56 PM

Brandon League was given an anti-inflammatory injection Monday for his sore right shoulder.

The shot will sideline him for several more days, but the Dodgers are hoping that it will help League get past his routine spring shoulder soreness. His status for Opening Day is sort of up in the air at this point.
Mar 16 - 12:36 PM

Brandon League (shoulder) indicated feeling much better on Saturday and he could play catch on Sunday.

League has been battling minor shoulder soreness in recent days, but it's not believed to be a major concern. He should return to game action early next week.
Mar 14 - 2:06 PM

Brandon League has given up drinking alcohol.

League told the Los Angeles Daily News that he never had a problem with alcohol but "was enjoying myself more than I should've been" and feels much more energized off the booze. He dropped 20 pounds this winter. The right-hander will work as a setup man in 2015.
Mar 2 - 1:51 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are talking to teams about a trade involving Brandon League.

Rosenthal says that the Dodgers are willing to eat almost half of League's $7.5 million salary for next season in order to move him. League is coming off a nice season, having posted a 2.57 ERA over 63 appearances, so he could draw some interest with the Dodgers paying down part of his contract.
