The Dodgers' shopping list ahead of the July 31 trade deadline might have grown Tuesday when Manny Ramirez was placed on the 15-day disabled list for the third time this season. Ramirez, plagued with a right calf strain, could be on the DL for "about three weeks," which means "you may all of a sudden be in the market for more" players than initially planned, Manager Joe Torre said. But General Manager Ned Colletti said the team's immediate priority remained pitching.

Meanwhile, back at Langley - whoops, sorry, I meant at Dodger Stadium - the Dodgers announced that Ted Lilly was going on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation and that they had called up reliever Mike Antonini from triple-A Albuquerque. Which is not to say Antonini will take Lilly's scheduled start on Tuesday; he will not. Stay tuned for Tuesday's move - shhh , still unannounced - when the Dodgers will call up right-hander Nathan Eovaldi from double-A Chattanooga to start Tuesday.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Angels lost an integral part of their bullpen Tuesday when left-handed reliever Scott Downs was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a shoulder strain, an injury that could sideline him for several weeks. “We're comfortable with the fact that this won't push him back too far, but he might need a couple of weeks for this to settle down,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “Right now, it's a minor issue, and we want to keep it that way.” Downs, 37, will be replaced on the roster by left-hander Hisanori Takahashi, who was called up from triple-A Salt Lake and joined the team for Tuesday night's game against the Texas Rangers.

Pitching for the Dodgers is easier this season than it was a year ago, according to Chad Billingsley. "It makes it a little bit easier to pitch knowing the guys are going to put runs up on the board for you," Billingsley said. Billingsley improved to 3-0 on a day he admitted to not having "my great stuff," earning the decision in the Dodgers' 9-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.

Rafael Furcal , who finally appears to be recovered from a back injury that required surgery two years ago, is heading to the disabled list. Multiple baseball sources told The Times that the Dodgers are planning to move Furcal to the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a strained left hamstring. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because the move hasn't been officially announced. The Dodgers are expected to replace Furcal with veteran shortstop Nick Green , who after Monday's game is batting an altitude-enhanced .219 in 20 games for their triple-A affiliate in Albuquerque.

The Dodgers aren't hitting and their bullpen is falling apart. Their disabled list includes three of their starting position players. But at least their rotation was stable. Until Wednesday. That was when an MRI exam revealed a bulging disk in the neck of Vicente Padilla , which will land him on the 15-day disabled list Friday. Padilla was visibly frustrated, saying, "We're not winning and I can't do anything to help the team. " The trip to the disabled list will be Padilla's second of the season.

Chad Billingsley was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday with what the Dodgers described as "right elbow pain. " In terms of buzz, the development was of secondary importance, as it came on the day the Dodgers completed their nine-player trade with the Boston Red Sox to acquire Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto. But in terms of what it meant to the Dodgers' postseason ambitions, it was potentially devastating. Billingsley was injured in the fourth inning of the Dodgers' win over the Marlins on Friday.

The Angels placed Maicer Izturis (inflamed right shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list for the third time this season Sunday, fueling more concerns about the utility infielder's durability and reliability. Izturis, who was injured diving for a hit Thursday night, had a career year in 2009, batting .300 with eight home runs, 65 runs batted in and 74 runs in 114 games. The Angels deemed him so valuable they gave him a three-year, $10-million contract. The switch-hitter avoided the DL in 2009 after being sidelined with six different injuries from 2005 to 2008, but now the "Fragile: Handle With Care" label is back.

Reporting from Philadelphia — Rafael Furcal will make the move he resisted. He is heading to the 15-day disabled list. On his way out of the Dodgers' clubhouse Tuesday night, Furcal said his surgically repaired lower back stiffened in a pregame workout, which included fielding grounders at shortstop. Furcal hadn't fielded grounders since he strained his back on a throw across his body Aug. 2. "We decided it was probably the safest thing to do," Manager Joe Torre said.
