There was a bit of an update on the injury front for the Dodgers that flew under the radar this week. Outfielder Billy McKinney, who has been on the injured list since September 10th while dealing with a left hip impingement set out on a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City. He joined the AAA club on Wednesday where he went 0-3. He backed that up with a 2-4 night on Thursday, scoring a run in a 5-2 OKC win over El Paso.
In 37 games with the big league Dodgers in 2021, the lefty swinger went 12-82 (.146) with a home run and 7 runs batted in. Altogether, McKinney has played for three different MLB clubs this season, combining to put together a .192/.280/.358 triple slash line with the Brewers, Mets, and Dodgers.
Chances aren’t high that McKinney would re-join LA this season but it’s possible that he could travel with the club throughout the postseason in a taxi squad situation.
