Dodgers’ Mookie Betts placed on injured list

On Sunday, the Los Angeles Dodgers placed right-fielder Mookie Betts on the 10-day injured list due to right-hip inflammation.

The Dodgers subsequently activated right-hander Jimmy Nelson, who was on the injured list due to a left-lumbar strain.

Due to his injury, Betts has not played since July 19 and has not started since July 17.

The Dodgers planned for Betts to return on Tuesday for the start of a three-game road series against the San Francisco Giants, but his body did not respond to recent treatment the way it was intended. He will now miss all three games.

This season, the 28-year-old has hit .270/.374/.502 (140 OPS+) with 25 doubles, three triples, 14 homers, 40 RBI, 63 runs, seven steals and 3.5 WAR. He was 12 for 16 with four doubles, three homers, seven RBIs, and 12 runs in his last four starts.

Currently, the Giants lead the Dodgers by two games in the NL West.
