LOS ANGELES -- Add on yet another injury for the Los Angeles Dodgers, as starting pitcher Bud Norris left Sunday's game in the first inning with an unknown ailment.

Norris, who was acquired by the Dodgers in a trade with the Atlanta Braves shortly after Clayton Kershaw went on the disabled list in late June, was visited twice by a trainer and Dodgers manager in the first inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks before he was finally removed.

The Dodgers have been plagued with injuries all season, which is a big reason they are in reported pursuit of players on a number of fronts before Monday's 1 p.m. PST non-waiver trade deadline.

The Dodgers have placed 22 different players on the disabled, tied for most in the National League over the past 30 years. Only the 2012 Boston Red Sox have sent more players to the DL (27) in a single season.
