The Dodgers have been quite familiar with the disabled list so far this season, and today they used the DL again, placing relief pitcher Hong-Chih Kuo on the 15-day DL with a left lower back strain. The move was retroactive to April 14. Ramon Troncoso was recalled from Triple A Albuquerque to take his place.
