Walker Buehler Provides Massive Injury Update Regarding His Return to Dodgers

Walker Buehler gave quite a scare the other day during his rehab start with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. He exited the game early after taking a line drive off the knuckle of his throwing hand.

After the game, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that Buehler was removed for precautionary reasons. However, followers of the team know that sometimes the organization can bury the lead a bit when it comes to injuries.

Buehler took to his Instagram to provide a positive update. He says he is fine and that he should make his next rehab start this coming Thursday.

Thursday will mark Buehler’s fourth rehab start as he makes his way back from his second major elbow surgery. Roberts has said, “that we are very close,” regarding when Buehler can make his return to a major league mound.

Not that the numbers matter too much in this instance, but Buehler has a 3.60 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in his three rehab starts this year.

  1. “However, followers of the team know that sometimes the organization can bury the lead a bit when it comes to injuries.”

    Correction: “…bury the lede a bit when it comes to injuries.”

    1. I’m a lot more worried about their bullpen, not spell corrections. This team was supposed to be a collection of great Stars. And they are. The pitching though needs to be a bit better, in most areas. Their bullpen is very hittable, and getting scary.

      1. The correction was directed to the writer of the article, whose profession kinda requires a knowledge of what words to use and how to spell them. You might want to also worry about Lux, Outman, and Taylor, who are batting a collective .123. A little production, ANY production, from the bottom of the lineup will not only take some pressure off the big bats at the top, but perhaps save some innings on those arms in the pen.

        1. While “lede” is accepted as the correct spelling of this word within journalistic circles, any dictionary will also display “lead” as an acceptable alternate. Since the average reader is familiar with the pronunciation and meaning of “lead” in this context (though perhaps not “lede”), we chose the acceptable alternate. Good eye!
