Wade’s Shoulder Sore
Dodgers reliever Cory Wade reported a sore shoulder and had a cortisone injection Wednesday that will sideline him several days, but manager Joe Torre said the condition wasn’t serious enough to warrant an MRI.
“We caught it early,” said Torre. “It’s in the same place as last year when he went on the DL. He’s down for a few days.”
Wade was a surprise last year, not even making the Opening Day roster, but became an unsung rookie workhorse that led the bullpen with 71 1/3 innings pitched. But he also missed 18 games in August with shoulder inflammation. — Ken Gurnick
