Dodgers downplay virus pitchers picked up in Miami

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers have seen a cold virus spread through their clubhouse since returning from Miami on Thursday. But manager Don Mattingly thinks it's not too serious.

The virus has affected starters Ricky Nolasco and Hyun-Jin Ryu ; relievers Ronald Belisario, J.P. Howell, Brandon League and Carlos Marmol ; as well as second baseman Mark Ellis. Each of those players except Belisario has appeared in a game since returning from Miami, though Belisario warmed up in the bullpen on Monday.

"A lot of them said they sound bad, but they feel all right," Mattingly said Tuesday. "They've got a cough, but they're not feeling bad. I think we're kind of getting on the other side of it, I hope. But you never know if it starts getting to the other guys."
