The health of the Dodgers took another hit on Saturday night after the team lost outfielder AJ Pollock to an apparent leg injury. The injury occurred when Pollo made an awkward slide attempt into third base for the final out of the first inning against the Giants.
Immediately, he was seen grabbing at his right hamstring.

The Dodgers officially termed it a right hamstring strain for AJ.
Cody Bellinger came into the game replacing Pollock on defense. Cody was inserted into centerfield with Chris Taylor sliding to left to fill in for the injured Pollock.
For the most part, AJ has stayed relatively healthy in 2021, save for an early-season bout with — you guessed it — a hamstring issue. In 107 games this year, the 33-year-old has a .297 batting average with 16 home runs and 58 runs batted in. He had an RBI double in his lone at-bat on Saturday night.
If Pollock heads to the injured list, the Dodgers may likely recall infielder/outfielder Matt Beaty from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
