X-rays negative on Jimmy Rollins' finger, Yasmani Grandal still bothered by sore left shoulder

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Jimmy Rollins is out of the starting lineup for the Dodgers in their series opener on Monday night against the Angels, awaiting results of X-rays on a finger on Rollins' right hand, hurt on a slide on Sunday in San Diego.

UPDATE (postgame):

Corey Seager gets the start at shortstop, his second at the position and fourth start in five games since getting promoted to the majors for the first time.

Grandal is in the midst of an 0-for-33 slump but was initially listed in the starting lineup before getting scratched. Grandal is also 1-for-45 dating back to Aug. 9, which coincides with when he was first dealing with a sore left shoulder.

That sore shoulder is still bothering Grandal, who is day-to-day per Ken Gurnick of

The original plan, as manager Don Mattingly told reporters on Sunday in San Diego, was for Adrian Gonzalez to be the designated hitter on Monday, which is the case, with Justin Turner at first base, presumably leaving third base for Seager.

Instead, Seager is at shortstop with Turner at third base, and Scott Van Slyke gets the start at first base, his fourth start this season at the position.

Kole Calhoun leads off for the Angels. He was a pest in the series in Los Angeles, starting two of the three games and going 5-for-8 with a home run, a double and two walks, including 3-for-4 against Zack Greinke.
