Originally written September 07, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Los Angeles Dodgers' rotation woes continued on Friday night when Chris Capuano left in the second inning of his start against the Cincinnati Reds with a groin strain. Jeremy Warnemuende and Joey Nowak of MLB.com report that Capuano is day-to-day with the strain. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said they will have to wait and see whether the left-hander will be able to make his next start. "We won't know if he'll make his next start or not," Mattingly said. "We will know more tomorrow. Chris was throwing the ball good." Capuano's performance was strong before he was forced to leave the game as he had retired five of six batters on 32 pitches.  After going on the DL twice already this season, the 35-year-old had managed to put together a string of starts through July and August without getting hurt, although he has not been pitching deep into games, going more than six innings just twice in six August outings, and giving up 46 hits in 32 2/3 innings in the process. Capuano was making the start in place of Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is dealing with a back issue, so any missed time will stretch the Dodgers rotation even further. Stephen Fife, who has started nine games for the Dodgers already this season, appeared in relief during last night's game and could be an option to fill in for Los Angeles if Capuano can't go.
