Proctor Not Hurt. No, Hurt. Optioned. No, to DL

From Diamond:

After being told he was going to be optioned, Dodgers reliever Scott Proctor revealed his elbow had been bothering him for "close to a month," according to Manager Joe Torre. Proctor, who after his last outing vehemently denied being hurt, will undergo a test probably tomorrow. "It happened in New York," Torre said. "'I'm alright, I'm alright.' You love him for his heart...Scotty's that guy who figures in spite of it he can go and get guys out. Has has at times...I don't agree with the thinking (of not reporting injuries). I don't condone that thinking."

Meanwhile, updates on those who make up a disabled list now worth about $74 million...

- Jason Schmidt (shoulder) will resume his rehabilitation assignment with Class AAA Las Vegas on Saturday.

- Hiroki Kuroda (shoulder) will pitch in a simulated game Friday and not make his Saturday start, with Chan Ho Park going instead.

- Brad Penny (shoulder) will possibly need a rehabilitation assignment before returning, and his simulated game is slated for Saturday.

So he tells the team he's injured only after they tell him they're sending him down? Seems like he thinks the DL is less shameful than the minors. Seems less heroic and more fishy, if you ask me.
