Dodgers News: LA Shakes Up Lineup, Bellinger Breaks Ribs, Lux Hurt From Pitching Machine & More

It was another successful weekend for the Dodgers who traveled to Cincinnati and took two out of three from the Reds, improving their record in series this season to 32-12-4. After dropping the first game of the three game set, Dave Roberts shook up LA’s batting order by moving Corey Seager back to the two hole and moving Max Muncy to the cleanup spot. The lineup tweak helped the Boys in Blue average 6.5 runs per game in the final two contests of the series. We discuss why this shakeup was long overdue and why it’s going to lead to a more consistent offense moving forward.

Next, Cody Bellinger can’t seem to catch a break this season. We learned over the weekend that the former MVP suffered a fractured rib in a collision with Gavin Lux in the outfield during LA’s series vs. the  Diamondbacks. We discuss Cody Bellinger’s latest injury and who will be manning the outfield in his absence for LA. Plus, how Gavin Lux suffered an injury after getting hit by a pitch from a pitching machine.

  1. Scherzer , without a doubt….! Not only can he pitch but his intensity and the fast way he works will have the batters off balance when they face him…

        1. Lux played the very next day. Which leads me to think that you just like thinking the very worst about people whom you don’t know but you don’t like. Which is exactly what the internet is for. Oh, what fun.

  2. Given how many times Dodger batters have been getting hit by opposing pitchers this season it seems inevitable that the pitching machines would start doing the same thing ; )
