Brad Penny Just Hurt Himself

Breaking news: Moments ago, Brad Penny just doubled over in pain after trying to run out an infield grounder and had to leave the game. This, of course, comes just one day after Derek Lowe aggravated a groin muscle running out an infield grounder.

As of yet, there’s no updates on either pitcher (Penny, of course, just went down 5 minutes ago). But without jumping to conclusions, it certainly doesn’t look impossible that both of them could miss a start. With Schmidt and Kuo out for the year, and Wolf still on the DL, that would make the rotation:

Billingsley
Tomko
Lurch
uh.. Stults?
and.. Houlton?

At right: the Dodgers season.
