Dodgers P Joel Peralta (neck) started playing catch


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Dodgers pitcher Joel Peralta has begun playing catch, according to the Los Angeles Times

Peralta is still recovering from a pinched nerve in his neck and has been cautious with his recovery. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 26 due to a dead arm that caused weakness in his arm. 

Peralta has appeared in seven games this year and has a 1-0 record with three saves. 


Dodgers reliever Joel Peralta's recover (neck) on hold


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said reliever Joel Peralta's recovery from a pinched nerve in his neck is on hold and that he'll continue to rehab in Los Angeles, reports MLB.com.

Peralta was diagnosed with dead arm that was causing weakness in his shoulder and put on the 15-day disabled list April 26.

He was initially thought to be back by early May but that return date will now be later.

Peralta has pitched in seven games this season, going 1-0 with three saves and has not allowed a run in 5 2/3 innings.

Dodgers place Yasiel Puig, Joel Peralta on disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) The Dodgers placed right fielder Yasiel Puig and pitcher Joel Peralta on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, MLB.com reports.

Puig reinjured his hamstring Friday, leading manager Don Mattingly to say Saturday that he could possibly hit the disabled list to allow the injury the proper time to rest and heal. Mattlingly said Sunday that the team would "protect" Puig from himself after the outfielder indicated he could play in four or five days.

"It's to the point where we want to get this thing right for the long haul, and in two weeks, [Puig will] be ready to play," Mattingly said. "Yasiel is disappointed. He thinks he'll be ready in four to five days. That's the tough part. We've seen that Yasiel plays at one speed. There's no real putting a governor on him. It's tough for him to say, 'Back off.' We'll protect him from himself."

Peralta was also considered a candidate for the disabled list as he has been dealing with a case of dead arm and has no strength in his shoulder.

"It seems to be lingering, and we want to get rid of it," Mattingly said of Peralta's issue. "We want to eliminate it and move forward. Same with Yasiel. We've messed around enough to say, 'We don't want to play around, play short out of the bullpen and off the bench.'"

With two spots opening on the active roster, the Dodgers purchased the contract of pitcher Scott Baker, who's scheduled to start Sunday's game, while recalling pitcher Carlos Frias from Triple-A Oklahoma City. In order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Baker, the Dodgers transferred Brandon League to the 60-day disabled list.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Dodgers' Joel Peralta strikes out two Monday
