Shoulder news in Dodgers land

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

For just the second time of 35 games this season, Cody Bellinger is not in the starting lineup.

This comes after his shoulder popped out and right back in during the fourth inning of Friday’s contest. According to manager Dave Roberts, isn’t the first time this has happened to the 23-year-old.

Though Bellinger is not in the lineup on Saturday, he will be available to pinch-hit if it is necessary. However, he is still experiencing some shoulder soreness because, well, his shoulder popped out of its socket.

In more shoulder news, left-handed pitcher Tony Cingrani has been placed with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on a rehab assignment. He’ll likely see some action in tonight’s game against the San Jose Giants.

Cingrani has been dealing with left shoulder inflammation and was placed on the 10-day injured list on Mar. 28. He has been facing this injury since the second half of the 2018 season.
