Dodgers put Yoshinobu Yamamoto on IL with triceps tightness



LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers right-hander Yoshinobu Yamamoto was placed on the 15-day injured list before Sunday's game against the Kansas City Royals with tightness in the triceps of his pitching arm.

Manager Dave Roberts said Yamamoto, 25, would undergo testing Sunday to determine the severity of the injury and a recovery timeline.

"He's a guy that we're still trying to learn a lot about, and appreciate the fact that the most important time of the season is yet to come," Roberts said. "His health is paramount. So for us to be proactive and put him on the IL seems like the smartest thing.
