Dodgers place Garciaparra on 15-day DL, recall Hill
LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers' postseason hopes took another hit on Tuesday when third baseman Nomar Garciaparra was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left calf muscle.
Garciaparra said the injury has plagued him for more than a week.
"We all have injuries and you deal with them. It wasn't an easy decision," said Garciaparra, who is on the DL for the ninth time in his career and third time in less than two seasons with the Dodgers.
