Now there is good news and bad news. Bad news is the pitchers have been plagued with injuries and it’s latest victim is┬áMike Bolsinger.

Bolsinger is dealing with left side abdominal tightness, and it seems the Dodgers don’t want to make his injury worst. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts telling Orange Country Register writer Bill Plunkett they will be “cautious” moving forward.

Bolsinger’s injury comes after he earned the fifth starter spot. With a hole there SportsNet LA reporter Alanna Rizzo says the team could look to the minor league for help.

Unfortunately, the Dodgers might need to call in for more help after outfielder Andre Ethier finds himself still on crutches. Ethier suffered an injury on his right shin after fouling a ball on Friday. He was expected to miss 2-3 days, but may be out longer.

Ethier underwent a bone scan on Monday according to MLB.com writer Ken Gurnick, but results won’t be available until Tuesday.

The Dodgers had announced Friday that Ethier’s x-rays initially showed no broken bones.

Moving on to good news, Roberts says shortstop Corey Seager could be ready by opening day. Still recovering from a knee injury he did take part in some drills with his teammates.

The Dodgers seem optimistic, posting a vine of Seager in the batting cage.
