Due to discomfort in his right shoulder, Los Angeles Dodgers placed right-hander Bobby Miller on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday.

The move is effective as of Wednesday, when Miller left the Dodgers’ 3-2 road defeat to the Minnesota Twins after pitching four innings of two-run ball.

 

Miller, who turned 25 last week, has made three starts this season and is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA. Miller, who the Dodgers selected in the first round of the 2020 draft, was an important member of the rotation in his rookie season, finishing with an 11-4 record and a 3.76 ERA in 22 starts. He walked 32 and struck out 119 in 124 1/3 innings pitched.

After being hit on the right hand by a comebacker during a two-inning rehab start on Friday, right-hander Walker Buehler, who hasn’t thrown in the majors since undergoing Tommy John surgery in August 2022, isn’t ready to make a comeback.

 

Buehler is good, and he will begin his next rehab assignment on Thursday, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts informed reporters on Saturday.

Until Buehler is ready to return, left-handed reliever Ryan Yarbrough, a starter in his career, may man the last place in the rotation.

 

Miller was joined on a 15-day IL by right-hander Connor Brogdon (right plantar fasciitis). J.P. Feyereisen, a right-hander, and Nick Ramirez, a left-hander, were brought up from Triple-A to the starting rotation.
