Dodgers pitcher Erik Bedard, who exited his last start Friday after one inning, was diagnosed with a strained latissimus dorsi muscle and will undergo an MRI exam. Manager Don Mattingly told reporters Sunday that the severity of the injury won’t be known until the MRI results are analyzed.
The news was better for right-hander Chad Gaudin, who left Saturday’s game after experiencing a “tweak” in his right biceps. Gaudin told reporters that he is on track to resume throwing and throw a bullpen session in the coming days.
The Dodgers reassigned first baseman/outfielder Kyle Jensen and outfielder Matt Carson to their minor league camp. Including Brandon Beachy and Chris Withrow, who are on the 60-day disabled list, the Dodgers have 41 players remaining in big league camp.
Juan Uribe turns 36 today.
Corey Seager is getting a spot start at shortstop today against the Cleveland Indians. It’s his first start since he was returned to the Dodgers’ minor-league camp.
