Well the good news is that this injury is only minor and occured during mini-camp so he should be 100 percent by the time training camp kicks around. Evans turned in a solid sophomore season, catching 74 passes for 1,206 yards and three touchdowns in 2015.
McCarthy is working his way back from Tommy John surgery and while it's good news that he is expected to throw a bullpen session he is not expected to return to a major league mound until June at the earliest.
Ryu missed all of 2015 due to a shoulder injury and during his recovery this off-season suffered a groin strain that set him back. With his groin now healed he will begin throwing to get his arm back in shape before heading out on a rehab assignment. The Dodgers were hopeful for a late-May return for Ryu but that will really depend on how his bullpen session goes.
Turner is slumping to begin the season, hitting .250 with nine runs, zero home runs, five RBI and an OPS of .672. The Dodgers begin a weekend series against the Padres on Friday.
Chatwood was slated to pitch today against the Pirates but with the game being postponed he will have his start pushed back a day and will face the Diamondbacks. He currently owns a 2-2 record with a 3.47 ERA and 1.29 WHIP on the season.
Castro has had a great start to the 2016 season so his return will be an immediate boost for the Rockies bullpen. He has recorded eight strikeouts, two hits, two walks, five holds, and just one earned run over six innings this season.
Motte has yet to throw a pitch this season but could challenge for saves upon his return to the team. Jake McGee is the current closer, and though his current numbers are ugly they came mostly from one very poor outing. Last season, Motte recorded 3.91 ERA and 1.22 WHIP as a member of the Cubs.
The Dodgers have so much talent that it is difficult to figure out what their lineup will be on a nightly basis. Tonight, Howie Kendrick will get the start at third base, which bounces Turner to the bench. Kendrick has just two hits in his last 23 at-bats, so this is an interesting to move as the Dodgers will square off against Jose Fernandez.
