After the loss on Monday night, it appeared as if nothing could get worse for the Dodgers bullpen.
About 15 minutes after the game ended, the Dodgers announced newly-acquired reliever John Axford would be placed on the DL with a fracture in his fibula.

The injury is a result from when he was hit on the leg in Colorado. As of now, looks like the injury will sideline him at least 2-3 weeks.
Things got off to a rocky start for the 35-year-old. In his Dodgers debut, the right-hander allowed six runs in 1⁄3 of an inning.
He’s settled down in his last two outings, allowing one hit in three innings while striking out four.
With Axford hitting the DL, this will call for yet another call-up to an ever-changing bullpen.
Brian Dozier was removed from the game because he was experiencing dizziness. He had an abnormal EKG. He will undergo further evaluation.
