They are all expected to return to the team sooner rather than later.

Bellinger and Turner benched

Cody Bellinger is not in the Dodgers lineup tonight. This comes after he got a 96 mph fastball to the knee on Monday night against the Reds.

Joining him in the dugout is Justin Turner, who also got injured by a ball on Jackie Robinson Day.

Though they are not getting the start in game two, Bellinger and Turner are available to play. Both are expected to make the starting lineup in the series finale against the Reds on Wednesday.

Ryu will “potentially” join team in Milwaukee

According to reports from the Dodger Insider, Hyun-Jin Ryu will make his way back to the Dodgers’ starting rotation. Ryu threw a 40-pitch bullpen on Monday and it looked good for him. He will likely return to the Dodgers later this week without requiring a rehab start.

With Ryu’s return to the rotation, it creates a domino effect of movement. Julio Urías will be the first to make a transition to the bullpen, followed by Ross Stripling (when Rich Hill gets back).
