Dodgers’ Yoshinobu Yamamoto Exits Start Saturday After Just Two Innings

Something seemed wrong with Los Angeles Dodgers starter Yoshinobu Yamamoto through his first two innings of work on Saturday. His velocity was off and just seemed a little off his game. He was originally supposed to start on Thursday but had his outing pushed back to today.

While he didn’t allow a run, Yamamoto only made it through two innings of work. Right-hander Michael Grove started warming up and Yamamoto was pulled from the game.

The coaching staff huddled together to check on him, which is never a good sign. Hopefully, Yamamoto is alright and won’t have to miss much time.

SportsNet LA sideline reporter Kirsten Watson said that Yamamoto had been feeling some tightness in his tricep, causing the team to pull him. Thankfully, it wasn’t elbow-related.

We are all hoping for a quick recovery for the right-hander.

  1. I just do not understand how one team can have so many pitcher injuries in the last 3 years. I researched the 2023 season, and the team lost 2,465 days to injury ( including all players ). Hopefully, Yoshi will be ok. He has been outstanding to this point, with his outing vs. the Yankees being an absolute gem. He seems like a really cool guy as well. Prayers for Yoshi.

  2. Ridiculous the number of pitchers this team has lost to injuries. Inconsistency the only consistency to the lineup. Another flop coming this October. Scioscia being named manager long overdue.

  3. Everyone has heard the old expression about “if the Dodgers didn’t have bad luck they …….” I think that the next several weeks are going to be very exciting (maybe not exciting but interesting) for the Dodgers. Who will bat leadoff, who will play shortstop on a consistent level, who will they trade for at this point, what will the pitching staff be like, who can they count on, who will “step it up”? Many questions. How do all the major injuries affect who they will try to get. Is Robert as important as Bichette at this point? Also, they have the same issue with the bottom of the line-up. Interesting …………………..
