The Los Angeles Dodgers placed pitcher Scott Kazmir on the 15-day disabled list with neck inflammation, making him the 27th Dodgers player to hit the disabled list this season, tying a major league record.

The 2012 Boston Red Sox also put 27 players on disabled list.

Boston finished in last place in the AL East that season with a 69–93 record. Los Angeles is currently 70–55, two games ahead of the San Francisco Giants in the NL West.

Dodgers lefthander Brett Anderson was also placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday with a blister on his left index finger, but he has already been on the DL this season. 

Four other Dodgers have been on the DL twice this year: Hyun-Jin Ryu, Brandon McCarthy, Scott Van Slyke and Josh Ravin, and the team has 14 players currently on the DL. 

Kazmir (10–6, 4.59 ERA) pitched a season-low 2 2/3 innings Monday in a 19–8 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Anderson has pitched only four innings over his last two starts since returning from back surgery.
