From the sound of it, it’s nothing too serious for Mookie. The Dodgers will know more on Saturday morning before they decide to play Betts against the Rockies.
For Mookie, he’s had a decent spring in his first season with Los Angeles. Mostly utilized in the leadoff spot, Mookie is 5 for 19 with one extra-base hit. Mookie has also yet to strike out in Spring Training.
