Dodgers place Alex Wood on 10-day DL, add Brandon Morrow to 25-man roster

In a corresponding move, Brock Stewart was moved to 60-day DL

MLB: Chicago Cubs at Los Angeles Dodgers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers placed left-handed pitcher Alex Wood on the 10-day disabled list with left SC joint inflammation retroactive to Saturday May 27. Wood was scheduled to start this Wednesday against the Cardinals, no replacement has been named.

This injury does not appear serious given what manager Dave Roberts said today.

Wood has had a fantastic May, he was 5-0 in five starts with a 1.27 ERA which includes an active 25⅓ consecutive scoreless innings streak.

Wood is the 21st different Dodger to be put on the disabled list in 2017.

To replace Wood on the roster, the Dodgers purchased the contract of right-handed pitcher Brandon Morrow who had been with the Oklahoma City Dodgers this year.

In May, Morrow had three saves and a 1.93 ERA in 9⅓ innings pitched. For the year, he had been in 17 games with a 5.71 ERA. Morrow has struck out 17 and walked four in 17⅓ innings.

In order to make room on the 40-man roster for Morrow, right-handed pitcher Brock Stewart was moved to the 60-day DL. Stewart had just begun his rehab with an appearance last week at Rancho Cucamonga. He was placed on the DL prior to the start of the season.
