Center fielder Todd Hollandsworth, who was sidelined for nearly two months after breaking a bone in his right wrist May 3, was put on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to Tuesday because of a broken right thumb.
Outfielder Chris Gwynn also went on the 15-day list, retroactive to Tuesday, because of tendinitis in his right knee.
Hollandsworth, who was injured sliding into third base in the seventh inning of Tuesday’s 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, thought the injury was a sprain, but the fracture was revealed after he had an MRI test Thursday. His thumb was put in a cast and he’s expected to be sidelined for at least four to five weeks.
Outfielder Roger Cedeno and infielder Garey Ingram were was recalled from triple-A Albuquerque.
Pitcher Willie Banks, who was designated for assignment July 31 after the Dodgers acquired Kevin Tapani from the Minnesota Twins, has been claimed off waivers by the Florida Marlins.
Third baseman Tim Wallach, who has played only two innings in the last nine games because of a lower back injury, took batting and infield practice before Thursday’s game and might be ready to return for the series against Pittsburgh.
