Dodgers pitcher Brandon League told reporters Saturday that he expects to be placed on the 60-day disabled list to begin the regular season with inflammation in his right shoulder.
The 32-year-old right-hander called the injury “devastating.” The timetable for recovery pushes his probable return to June.
League’s MRI results were examined by team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache and Dr. James Andrews in Las Vegas. He told reporters that surgery was an alternative, but that would have pushed his timetable even later.
League made 63 appearances out of the Dodgers’ bullpen last season and limited opponents to a .683 OPS. He is in the final year of a three-year, $22.5 million contract.

Jarrin, 79, will receive his award tonight at Servite’s fifth annual Excellence in Leadership Dinner at the Anaheim Marriott.
The school also announced the establishment of the Jaime Jarrín Scholarship Award, which will be granted to deserving students from economically impacted backgrounds.
