Tommy John Surgery For Rubby De La Rosa

Rubby De La Rosa will undergo Tommy John surgery, and likely miss at least 9-12 months.

As expected, the Dodgers announced today that Rubby De La Rosa will need Tommy John surgery. De La Rosa said he was told recovery would take nine to 12 months, according to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times. But for all intents and purposes, it's tough to plan for 2012 including any sort of a contribution from Rubby.

Tonight in San Diego, Hiroki Kuroda looks to snap his four-game losing streak. He has faced the Padres once this season, and came within one out of a complete game shutout on April 9 at Petco Park. This is also the site of Kuroda's major league debut, a 7-1 win on April 4, 2008.

Lineups

Andre Ethier is out of tonight's lineup for a yet unknown reason. For the second time this season, Aaron Miles is batting third.
