Forsythe exits with right hamstring tightness

      Comments Off on Forsythe exits with right hamstring tightness

Dodgers starting second baseman was removed from Saturday night’s 8-4 win over Arizona after four innings with right hamstring tightness.

Forsythe and manager said they believe the injury is minor. Roberts said Forsythe will not play on Sunday.

Forsythe said he felt the muscle tighten when he scored in the first inning (which he opened with a double) on ’s single and raiders jerseys cheap.

“Didn’t think too much of it, went back out for defense and felt a little tightness there,” he said. “As the game went on, it didn’t get any worse, I just couldn’t get the tightness out of there. It wasn’t a grab or pop or anything like that. My level of concern is not very high. We’ll see what it feels like in the morning of cheap authentic mlb¬†jerseys china.”

Forsythe also singled in the second inning and singled in a run in the fourth. When the fourth inning was over, Forsythe came out of the game as part of a double-switch.


“Anything is possible, but I think it was more an opportunity to get his feet wet,” Roberts said.

Roberts said Pederson (groin strain), Gutierrez (hamstring) and Forsythe (toe fracture) should all return next week and at least be with the team when they open a three-game series in San Diego next Friday.

Bellinger went into Friday’s game against the Phillies with one hit in his first 10 at-bats, an infield single. Roberts wasn’t ruling out the possibility that Bellinger could stick if he went on an offensive tear.

“I do know he is here because of injury and these guys are coming back,” Roberts said. “We’ll get Joc, Logan and Franklin back. It was just a good opportunity to get Cody his feet wet. Do I see him coming back here at authentic jerseys cheap or any other point? Yeah.”

Roberts said Gutierrez could return slightly ahead of Pederson and Forsythe, depending on the pitching matchups in their next series against the Giants.

Then there’s Bellinger’s glove. Some scouts say he was the best defensive prospect in the Minors and potentially one of the best defenders they’ve ever seen at first base. Considered a lock to be a future Gold Glove Award winner, the 6-foot-4, 210-pounder is exceptionally smooth around the bag and excels at digging errant throws out of the dirt.

That’s no problem for Bellinger, who’s exceedingly athletic for a first baseman and has plenty of experience in the outfield.

Bellinger has experience playing all three outfield positions in the Minors, seeing more time in center field than on the corners. He moves well for a big man and has solid arm strength, and he’s expected to see action in both center and left for the Dodgers.

Having grown up around the game as the son of Clay Bellinger, a slick-fielding shortstop who earned two World Series rings with the Yankees and played for the 2004 Greek Olympic team, Cody should be more comfortable getting acclimated to the big leagues than most rookies. He’s more talented than most as well, capable of producing 20 homers and getting on base at a respectable clip should he get regular playing time in Los Angeles.

The Dodgers didn’t promote Bellinger to the Majors to sit on their bench, and he could make it difficult to send him back to Triple-A. For now, he’s the youngest everyday player in the big leagues — supplanting fellow Top 100 Prospect , whom the Giants called up on Monday.
