Vicente PadillaThe Dodgers have announced reliever Vicente Padilla will have neck surgery on Thursday and is out an "extended period of time."

The 33-year-old right-hander hasn't pitched since May 13 when he was put on the disabled list. Padilla has no record and a 4.15 ERA in nine appearances with three saves.

The Dodgers have been using a hodgepodge of relievers in their bullpen, as seven different pitchers have recorded saves for the team this season. Lefty Scott Elbert was the latest Dodgers reliever to record a save, picking up the first of his career by recording one out against the Rockies on Sunday.

Kenley Jansen (right shoulder inflammation) and Hong-Chih Kuo (anxiety disorder) are currently on rehab assignments, while closer Jonathan Broxton (bone bruise in right elbow) is expected to start a rehab assignment this week.
