Dodgers place Alex Wood on DL with shoulder inflammation

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed left-hander Alex Wood on the 10-day disabled list Monday with inflammation of the SC joint in his shoulder.

The move was made retroactive to May 27.

Veteran reliever Brandon Morrow was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City to fill his roster spot.

Manager Dave Roberts indicated Wood's injury wasn't serious, calling it a "one-start thing," according to the Los Angeles Times.

Wood, 26, is 6-0 this season with a 1.69 ERA in 10 appearances (eight starts). He has won his last five starts and hasn't allowed a run in 25 consecutive innings pitched.

"I'm just trying to be smart about it," Wood told reporters, according to the Times. "I've done a lot of dumb things in my life. We're just trying to be smart and stay where we're at, and get the inflammation out of there, and plug back in for the next start."
