Greinke's spot in the rotation doesn't come up again until Tuesday against the Padres at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers on Friday placed Zack Greinke on the 15-day disabled list, one day after he suffered a broken left collarbone in a brawl with the Padres and Carlos Quentin. To replace Greinke on the roster, the Dodgers recalled right-handed relief pitcher Shawn Tolleson from Triple-A Albuquerque before Friday night's game against the Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix.

Tolleson saved two games for the Isotopes in his three appearances this season, and struck out six with two walks and two hits allowed in 5⅔ innings. The length of Tolleson's stay on the roster could depend on Ted Lilly, who was scheduled to throw a bullpen session in Arizona on Friday.

Greinke's spot in the rotation comes up again on Tuesday, and the options to start in his place are either Lilly, who threw 90 pitches for Triple-A Albuquerque in a minor league rehab start on Wednesday, or Chris Capuano, who has pitched in relief so far this season for the Dodgers.

Given that Capuano hasn't been stretched out since a seven-inning outing in a minor league game in spring training on Mar. 25, it would seem Lilly is the favorite to start Tuesday since his arm is stretched out. With off days on Apr. 19 and Apr. 22, the Dodgers wouldn't need another start from Lilly or Capuano until Apr. 27.
