The Dodgers will take on the Pirates once again on Wednesday night looking to avoid the sweet. After Pittsburgh took the 2 first games, Los Angeles will be sending out Mitch White to try and get the win against Jose Quintana.
But the Dodgers will also be without Cody Bellinger in the starting lineup again on Wednesday. The Dodgers centerfielder has been out since Sunday after going 0-for-3 on Saturday night against the Diamondbacks. He has been sitting with what the team is calling a left adductor strain.
Originally, Bellinger was going to be in the Dodgers lineup on Wednesday. That decision might have changed based on the matchup against the southpaw Quintana.

But the good news is that Dave Roberts did say Bellinger would be available off of the bench tonight. That means the Dodgers do think that he is healthy enough to play, which is a very good sign. Roberts had also said that a trip to the injured list was not something they were considering.
The Dodgers have been going with Chris Taylor in center with Cody out. He made a running catch on Tuesday night that ended in him colliding with the wall. Based on initial reports, that doesn’t appear to be an issue today.
