Originally posted on Dodgers Rumors  |  Last updated 6/4/12

The Dodgers disabled list is growing at an alarming rate yet again. Good news today that Rivera has been activated, but it seems like for every activation someone has to go down with an injury. The Dodgers former closer Javy Guerra has found himself on the DL with right knee inflammation, according to Dylan Hernandez.

In his absence the Dodgers have called up a potential threat out of the bullpen in Shawn Tolleson, who will be wearing number 38 for the Dodgers tonight. In 19 appearances between Chattanooga and Albuquerque, Tolleson went 0-1 with a 2.82 ERA, and a 6.80 K/BB. I can see Tolleson seizing the opportunity and being one of the more reliable options out of the 'pen, forcing the Dodgers to perhaps designate Jamey Wright for assignment, once Guerra returns. It kinda makes you wonder if this knee has been bugging Guerra for long, because he certainly hasn't looked like the dominant force out of the 'pen like he was in 2011. Could this be the cause? Perhaps. I guess we will see in a few weeks.
