Dodgers put Bobby Miller on IL with shoulder inflammation.

The organization placed right-handed starter Bobby Miller on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder irritation. The injury is "not severe," according to Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times, but a pitcher's shoulder is always concerning.

J.P. Feyereisen and Nick Ramirez were called up to replace Dodgers reliever Connor Brogdon, who was placed on the IL.  

Miller's injury disrupts expected breakout season for the sophomore. After 22 starts, the rookie flamethrower had a 3.76 ERA, one of the Dodgers' few dependable starters.  

His first start this season against the St. Louis Cardinals was impressive, striking out 11 and allowing two hits in six scoreless innings. However, his next two appearances were poor, surrendering seven earned runs in 5 2/3 innings.  

The Dodgers already had a full rotation on the injury list with Walker Buehler, Clayton Kershaw, Emmet Sheehan, Dustin May, and Tony Gonsolin, plus Shohei Ohtani, who is hitting only due to a ruptured UCL.  

The team's rotation of Tyler Glasnow, Yoshinobu Yamamoto, James Paxton, and Gavin Stone without Miller. Glasnow has been great this season, while the other three have struggled with a 5.80 ERA in nine starts.  

After a comebacker to his pitching hand, Buehler left his most recent rehab start at Triple-A, but he is close to returning from a second Tommy John surgery. He will make his next rehab start on Thursday and is OK.  

The Dodgers have Triple-A players Kyle Hurt and Landon Knack as rotation replacements if Buehler isn't ready. Top 100 prospect River Ryan is at Triple-A but needs a 40-man spot.
