The Los Angeles Dodgers were hoping to break some records during this 2016 season. But, I don’t think breaking the record for most players going down on the DL was the record they were shooting for.

Josh Reddick is the newest Dodger to go down, although he hasn’t been placed on DL nor should he be. Reddick was scratched from the series finale lineup vs. the Cincinnati Reds due to a finger injury.

It seems Reddick jammed his finger ordering room service on Sunday night. Although this is a very minor injury and Reddick should be back in lineup soon, he didn’t get the start in right field.

Maybe, this will be good for Reddick to sit down, relax, and watch a couple of games from the dugout in order to give his finger some time to heel and for him to clear his mind.

Hopefully, this little break will be exactly what Reddick needs to get comfortable in the box and break out of his mini slump.  Take a look at what the 2016 All-Star, Josh Reddick, did this season in Oakland before becoming a Dodger last month.

Following his start against the Reds, it has been reported that pitcher Scott Kazmir will be getting his back and neck checked out on Tuesday in L.A. Kazmir went 2.2 innings in his start vs. the Reds giving up six hits, 4 runs and 3 walks vs. the Reds.

Hopefully, Kazmir doesn’t have to add his name to the ever-growing Dodger disabled list. But if he does, that will leave Kenta Maeda as the only starting pitcher for the Dodgers this year that hasn’t gone down on the DL so far.
