Dodgers Await MRI Results On Loney's Left Knee

James Loney had an MRI on his left knee this morning after he felt some stiffness.

James Loney had an MRI on his left knee this morning after he felt some stiffness. Don Mattingly didn't think the injury was serious, telling Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, "He’s not feeling any pain. We just want to find out early." The Dodgers await the results of the test this afternoon, but in the meantime the first baseman will miss today's game. Russ Mitchell gets the start in his place at first base today against the Reds.

Clayton Kershaw will be making his second start of the spring. Kershaw, who allowed one unearned run in three innings on Monday against the White Sox, will throw about 60 pitches today.
