Dodgers Quick Hits: Injury updates, Dustin May, Tony Gonsolin
The Dodgers will get plenty of reinforcements back Sunday when rosters expand. That should help rejuvenate a struggling Dodger team.
On Sunday, many of the Dodgers’ injured players will return to the club when rosters expand. Ross Stripling, David Freese, and Dylan Floro are all scheduled to re-join the club on Sunday. The Dodgers will also get Julio Urias back on Tuesday when he returns from his suspension. The other news that broke Friday was Max Muncy’s diagnosis.
Muncy does have a crack in his wrist and will hope to return to baseball activities in 1-2 weeks. While the news is not good for a struggling offense, the injury could have been season ending so this is still a relief. The Dodgers will get one more first base option back on Sunday when David Freese returns.
The other injured Dodger is Alex Verdugo and he is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment sometime in the next week. With the minor league season now entering the postseason, Verdugo could join the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes for a few games and help them win the Cal League title. Dugie last appeared in a game on August 4th for the Dodgers.
