Kenta Maeda placed on disabled list with hip strain

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Los Angeles Dodgers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers on Wednesday placed pitcher Kenta Maeda on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hip, and recalled Dennis Santana from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Santana, who is still wearing the number 77 he had in spring training, might start this weekend but for now he’ll be available out of the bullpen for the final two games against the Phillies.

If it’s not Santana who starts this weekend in Colorado, someone else will have to make that start. Brock Stewart returning would require another DL move, and someone not on the 40-man roster (Manny Baneulos?) would require a corresponding roster move.

As for Maeda, it is unknown just how long he will be out.

Broadcast news

Joe Davis will be busy with national duties for Fox this weekend, calling Cubs-Mets with John Smoltz and Ken Rosenthal. That means Charley Steiner will call games on SportsNet LA on Friday and Sunday, with Kevin Kennedy working with Rick Monday on radio.

Saturday’s Dodgers-Rockies game will be exclusively on Fox, called by Don Orsillo and Eric Karros.

When the Dodgers play the Cubs at Dodger Stadium, ESPN will televise the first three games of the series (June 25-27). The Monday and Wednesday ESPN broadcasts will not be blacked out in the Los Angeles market.
