Another domino falls: Gary Bennett to DL

In addition to his throwing issues, he is now suffering from plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He has been replaced on the roster by veteran backup Danny Ardoin, who has been on fire of late at Triple-A Las Vegas and had his contract purchased. To get Ardoin onto the 40-man roster, Dodgers had to move Jason Schmidt to the 60-day DL. It won’t delay his return at all. I believe he has already been on the 15-day for 60 days, and if he hasn’t, he is only two or three days away.

    I’m curious how a back up catcher who almost NEVER plays develops a repetitive exercise condition/injury as plantar fasciitis. I wonder if arthritis is involved. Maybe he’s diabetic, that can be a factor as well. Any word on the length of time on this injury Tony?
