GLENDALE, AZ - Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Jon Garland will be shelved for 4-to-6 weeks after suffering a strained left oblique injury in Wednesday's spring training game against Seattle.

After delivering a pitch to the Mariners' Josh Wilson with two outs in the second inning, Garland went into a crouch on the mound. He walked off the field with a trainer.

The 31-year-old spent last season in San Diego and had arguably his best big league season, going 14-12 with a career-best 3.47 earned run average and career-high 136 strikeouts in 33 starts.

Garland, a Valencia, California native, spent the latter portion of 2009 with his hometown Dodgers after a trade with Arizona. In 344 career games, he is 131-114 with a 4.32 ERA.
