Tim Redding added to list of injured Dodgers

Right-handed starter Tim Redding exited the Dodgers' 6-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fourth inning Friday because of lower back pain on his right side. Redding immediately returned to Phoenix, where he was scheduled to be examined.

With Jon Garland expected to start the season on the disabled list because of a strained side muscle, Redding was the favorite to replace him as the Dodgers' fifth starter. If Redding is hurt, the job is likely to  go to John Ely.
