From "Dodgers to lose reliever Kuo to DL" by Ken Gurnick at Dodgers.com:
The star-crossed left-hander has another injury to that left elbow that has already undergone four operations, including two Tommy John ligament reconstructions. He tried to warm up to go into Friday night's game for the eighth inning, and it was painful to watch.
Kuo made 15 throws in the bullpen, only four of them catchable by the bullpen catcher. Most bounced out of reach, while two sailed over the bullpen gate and rolled into the infield.
"It's his elbow, and he finally admitted it," manager Joe Torre said after Friday night's 1-0 victory over the Padres. "We talked to him and we're going to put him on the DL and get this thing right."
Let's hope Kuo doesn't meet a Brazoban-esque fate, but this has bad situation written all over it. Don't expect him back anytime soon.
