Dodgers News: Tyler Glasnow placed on injured list as Blue Crew relives horrors of 2023

The Los Angeles Dodgers just don’t have any luck. More specifically, their pitchers just can’t find a way to avoid injuries. A few weeks ago, it was Yoshinobu Yamamoto who unexpectedly developed problems with his rotator cuff. This led the Blue Crew to become extra cautious with their ace Tyler Glasnow, who already had a problematic history with injuries. However, this care may not have produced the desired results, as the reports have only just come in and Glasnow will now not participate in the All-Star Game.

Although Glasnow hasn’t been his usual self in recent games, the ace was still an important part of Dodgers history. His dominance was so great that he was named an All-Star and was likely to start the game. But then disaster struck and he’s now on the injured list for 10 days.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have just announced that Tyler Glasnow has been traded to the Injury list due to tension in the lower backDave Roberts had previously revealed that the star had felt a certain tension during catcher’s training on Sunday.

The injury is not expected to be serious (he has not undergone imaging studies) and Glasnow is expected to be back after All-Star weekend, but it is still another blow for the Blue Crew.

What impact do you think Tyler Glasnow’s injury will have on the Dodgers’ season?

The Los Angeles Dodgers are already entering the game with a severely depleted roster. With many of their pitchers missing, the team is facing a repeat of the horrors of 2023. Back then, they were similarly hit by pitcher injuries and had to rely on junior players and rookies at the end of the season. This was one of the reasons the team lost the NLDS despite having a 100-win season.

So how long is the Dodgers’ injury list? It’s long enough to build a top starting lineup from the team’s injured pitchers. And then you can use the injury list to build a great bullpen as well.

Tyler Glasnow’s injury report hit Dodgers fans like a bolt of lightning. But the panic was entirely justified. When you look at the list of pitchers currently on the Los Angeles Dodgers’ injured list, the matter becomes pretty clear. This staggering list explains just how deep the problem runs. Tyler Glasnow, Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Shohei Ohtani, Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler are currently on the injured list.

And then there’s Dustin May, Tony Gonsolin and Emmet Sheehan. That’s a pretty long list, isn’t it? But then there’s Ryan Brasier, Joe Kelly and Jason Heyward. As of now over 10 jugs of the Dodgers are on the injured list. That’s more than enough to understand the tremendous depth of the Dodgers’ pitching crisis. Hopefully expectations prove correct and Tyler Glasnow returns soon. If not, then the Blue Crew will have plenty to do during the trade deadline.
