Cody Bellinger and Chris Taylor, Dodgers
Bellinger left the Dodgers' win at Oakland on Monday in the top of the ninth inning after the outfielder was spiked in the leg by A's pitcher Reymin Guduan. The two collided racing for the first-base bag after Bellinger hit a ground ball to the right side.
The play resulted in a single for Bellinger, who appeared to be moving gingerly and was replaced by pinch-runner Gavin Lux. Manager Dave Roberts said afterward that the club will know more about Bellinger's condition on Tuesday.
Taylor had left the game back in the third inning and was diagnosed with a left elbow contusion. Hit by a Frankie Montas fastball, Taylor stayed in to run the bases but then was removed in the bottom of the inning. Roberts said his utilityman is day to day, after X-rays came back negative. More >
Fernando Tatis, Jr., Padres
Tatis left Monday night's game against the Giants in the third inning after injuring himself on a swing. At the end of a big cut against a pitch from Anthony DeSclafani, Tatis immediately crumpled to the ground, in obvious pain. He walked off the field holding his left arm and was diagnosed with a left shoulder subluxation (a partial dislocation). Tatis will be reevaluated on Tuesday to determine a timetable for his return.
Kevin Kiermaier and Chaz Roe, Rays
Kiermaier exited the Rays' loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park in the third inning on Monday due to left quadriceps tightness. Manager Kevin Cash said he thought the muscle first tightened up on the fleet-footed center fielder as he was running to first base trying to beat out a double play in the second.
“Concerning,” Cash said. “Not ideal, for sure.” More>
The Rays placed Roe on the 10-day injured list Monday, and the right-handed reliever could miss 12 weeks with a right shoulder strain. He will be shut down from throwing for the next six weeks. More >
Tim Anderson, White Sox
Anderson left Sunday night’s 7-4 loss to the Angels at Angel Stadium in the bottom of the first inning with left hamstring tightness. He was out of the team's lineup on Monday in Seattle and is not expected to play at all in the three-game series. However, Anderson is still hoping to avoid the injured list.
“I’d say if you told me he’d be ready [for the home opener] on Thursday, we would all be very pleased,” White Sox manager Tony La Russa said on Monday.
