Dodgers put RHP Norris on DL with back strain, Stripling up
LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers have put right-hander Bud Norris on the 15-day disabled list with a strained muscle in his back.
Righty Ross Stripling was activated and started Saturday against Boston. The move with Norris was retroactive to Monday.
Norris, acquired in a five-player deal from Atlanta in June, had to leave a start last Sunday against Arizona after facing just two batters.
Norris is the 26th player placed on the disabled list by the Dodgers, second-most in the majors over the last 30 years to the 27 by the 2012 Red Sox.
