The Los Angeles Dodgers placed starting pitcher Ted Lilly on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation, according to the Los Angeles Times' Dylan Hernandez.


It had previously been reported Lilly would miss his next start. Nathan Eovaldi was recalled from Double-A Chattanooga to take his place in the rotation.

Lilly is 5-1 with a 3.14 ERA in eight starts this season. His only loss came last Wednesday when he gave up nine hits and eight runs in 3 1/3 innings. Before that start, his ERA was only 1.79. The 36-year-old is one of many Dodgers off to a hot start. Los Angeles has a league-best record of 32-15 but has dealt with many injuries, including to star outfielder Matt Kemp.
