Edwin Ríos is expected to play for the Dodgers on Friday night against the A’s at Camelback Ranch, which will be his first game in a week after dealing with a hamstring injury.

“He had a little bit of a cramp, a mild hamstring-type thing, and we wanted him to be down for a few days,” Dave Roberts said on Thursday. “But he’s running around, feeling good. He’ll be back in there tomorrow.”

Ríos last played on March 19, and up to that point had played in every other game for the Dodgers this spring, until missing the last five games. Ríos is 4-for-22 with a pair of doubles and two walks in Cactus League playu, hitting .182/.250/.273. He missed 13 games last August on the injured list with a left hamstring strain.
