Cody Bellinger not in lineup for third straight game

It appears the Dodgers are being extra cautious with Cody Bellinger. For the third straight game, Dave Roberts didn’t pencil Bellinger into the lineup. “He’s going to go out there and run today and see how it responds,” Roberts said when speaking with reporters on Monday. “We were initially hopeful it was going to be a day or two, but as the days have progressed there hasn’t been a whole lot of improvement. Even tomorrow, it’s unlikely he’ll be in there. Best-case scenario would be Wednesday before the off-day.”

Cody Bellinger Remains Out Monday

The Los Angeles Dodgers have submitted their lineup card for tonight’s encounter against the Philadelphia Phillies, and for the third straight, it didn’t feature Cody Bellinger. Bellinger is reportedly dealing with a tight left hamstring, and the Dodgers are in no hurry to rush him back after spending almost two months on the injured list with a hairline fracture in the same leg. The Dodgers have not provided an update on how long Bellinger is expected to be out.

Dodgers Injury Update: Cody Bellinger May Need Stint On Injured List

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Return to injured list possible

Bellinger (hamstring) isn't expected to return before Wednesday and could wind up returning to the injured list, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. Bellinger missed most of April and May with a broken fibula and had been back in action for less than two weeks when he was pulled from Friday's game against the Rangers due to tightness in his left hamstring. The Dodgers previously expressed optimism that he'd return Sunday, but he hasn't made the desired progress and will be at minimum three days behind that schedule. Whether or not he lands on the injured list will depend on his progress over the next day or two.

Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger could be headed to IL if hamstring doesn’t improve

Bellinger's hamstring injury and first baseman Max Muncy's oblique strain – both suffered during Friday night's win – are just the latest in the long line of injuries that have trailed the Dodgers all season. The consensus favorites to win the NL West again and defend their National League championship, the Dodgers have had their projected starting lineup together for just five games. Bellinger suffered a hairline fracture in his leg during the fifth game of the season.

Dodgers Injury Notes: Max Muncy, Cody Bellinger, Corey Seager, More

Right when things seem to be looking up for the Los Angeles Dodgers on the injury front, something else happens that pushes the team a few steps backwards. There were several key names missing from the lineup that suffered a 12-1 defeat to the Rangers on Saturday evening. Most notably, Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger did not play in the contest. Couple those absences with Corey Seager’s broken hand and Mookie Betts’ .248 season average, and you’ll probably see a team that produces inconsistent offensive numbers from one night to the next.

Cody Bellinger (hamstring) not in Dodgers starting lineup again

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger is not in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the visiting Texas Rangers, missing his second game with a left hamstring injury. The 2019 NL MVP was initially slated to return to the lineup on Sunday, according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, but he was not on the team's lineup card heading into the afternoon game. Mookie Betts will play centerfield and lead off on Sunday, while Luke Raley will start in right and bat seventh.
