Dodgers placed OF Kike Hernandez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 28, with left rib cage inflammation.
This one comes a bit out of left field, as there was little indication that Hernandez was dealing with any sort of a significant injury. Manager Dave Roberts shed a little light on the unexpected move to the disabled list, telling reporters that Hernandez has been fighting discomfort for the past two weeks. A timetable for his return should be solidified in the coming days. Prior to the disabled list trip, Hernandez owned an uninspiring .189/.280/.346 triple-slash across 143 plate appearances.
