Dodgers Notes: Huge Clayton Kershaw Update, Unfortunate Max Muncy News, Former Top Prospect DFA’d

The Los Angeles Dodgers looked happy to be back home.

The Dodgers erupted for four home runs, including three in the sixth inning alone, of a 15-2 win over the Texas Rangers at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday. The Rangers’ backup catcher pitched the final two innings.

There was plenty of news to catch up on otherwise, including updates on Miguel Rojas’ playing time due to leg issues, Clayton Kershaw’s ongoing recovery, Corey Seager’s anticipated return to Dodger Stadium delayed, and more.

Why Isn’t Miguel Rojas Playing More For the Dodgers?

Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Miguel Rojas has been limited to backup duties this season, primarily due to ongoing leg soreness, despite strong season stats (including a .283 average). His significant defensive contributions in the absence of injured third baseman Max Muncy haven’t been overlooked, but manager Dave Roberts is cautiously managing the 35-year-old infielder’s health for the long run.

Corey Seager Not in Rangers’ Lineup Tuesday Against Dodgers

  1. The Dodgers are going to make a trade; that is a given. I hope Andy Pages is not on the block. He’s come into his own. He has been hitting.321 for the last 15 games. While 15 games do not make a season, it shows he’s adjusting to ML pitching.

    Please Please do not trade him.
