Before the game, Dave Roberts called it a scheduled off day for Turner. As for Mookie, he missed Wednesday night’s game and was removed early on Tuesday night while he dealt with flu-like symptoms. He received fluids via IV drip last night and returned to Los Angeles ahead of the team to help mitigate the spread of his sickness.
Walker Buehler is on the mound for the Dodgers tonight and facing Chicago right-hander Zach Davies. Today’s game also marks the first time that long-time Dodger outfielder Joc Pederson returns to Dodger Stadium where he will receive his 2020 World Series ring on the field before the game.
Clayton Kershaw, JT, and Cody Bellinger will be part of the presentation.
