The Los Angeles Dodgers may have caught the momentum behind their six-game winning streak against the San Diego Padres in their National League West showdown, but they are also dealing with injuries with Cody Bellinger, Gavin Lux and AJ Pollock.
For Lux, he was scratched from the lineup on Thursday due to a sprained right wrist. Lux appeared in a win over the Colorado Rockies, though only as a pinch runner for Pollak.
Lux suffered a right wrist soreness from Thursday’s lineup, the Los Angeles Daily News reported J.P. Was scratched from Hornstra.
Originally there was no reason to remove Lux from the lineup. It is unclear whether the injury will put him beyond Thursday’s competition, but he will have a chance to return to the field early on Friday as the Dodgers begin a series in San Diego.
Robert explained after the game, “AJ started in line to do a single leg out and his left groin was a bit tight.” “We were talking, to get a man on second base and possibly get a couple extra runs on a base hit, I just felt that Gavin had something before the game – something felt in his wrist , So that day is going to be day – so I wanted to stay away from him with bat and fielding.
“I felt that if he wasn’t available to do anything else, I wanted him to do no further injury to AJ and get Gavin there for a possible base hit.”
Like Lux, polak is considered to be day-to-day with a left waist tightness. “I think we got ahead of it,” Roberts said. He said, “There were some issues at different points in his career, but we stayed ahead of it. [Friday], once he gets up and goes to the ballpark, getting some treatment, we know more. “
Dodgers Taxi Squad
Should the Dodgers need to place Polak on the 10-day IL, they will likely remember DJ Peters for his first experience at the big league level. The Dodgers for the Outfielder Road Trip is scheduled to take place among the players on the taxi squad.
