GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Dodgers reliever Brandon League said he will be examined on Friday by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, and he plans to get a second opinion on his right shoulder regardless of the results.
League, who is now expected to open the season on the disabled list, said he plans to fly on Friday with VP of medical services Stan Conte to Las Vegas, site of this week's annual meeting for the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. ElAttrache, as well as at least one other doctor, will examine League and provide a diagnosis for the persistent discomfort he has felt for two weeks.
