Shawn Tolleson OK after left knee scare

Eric Stephen | True Blue LA

The Dodgers pitcher was cleared by team doctors on Wednesday, one day after leaving his appearance early after feeling pain in his left knee.

It turned out that the scare Shawn Tolleson got on Tuesday with his left knee was nothing more than just that, a scare. Tolleson, who came out of Tuesday's game after five pitches after feeling pain in his knee, was cleared by team doctors on Wednesday.

"It's a huge relief," Tolleson said.

Tolleson retired Jeudy Valdez to open the eighth inning on Tuesday against the Padres, but after just two pitches to Gregorio Petit, Tolleson felt something in his left knee that he never felt before.

"I just felt something move in my knee and felt a pain, so it kind of spooked me. I didn't want to test it or throw another pitch or anything. I came out of the game and they checked it out," Tolleson said. "Everything checked out good and clean. Today there is no swelling, no soreness, no nothing."

Tolleson participated in workouts on Wednesday, but only did light tossing, and no pitchers fielding practice.

"They're not getting any signs of anything major. He feels great today, no swelling. We'll get him out here and let him keep moving," said manager Don Mattingly.

Tolleson is expected to resume throwing in full on Thursday.
