Dodgers Star Bellinger Has Hairline Fracture in Left Leg

Los Angeles Dodgers focus defender Cody Bellinger has a hairline break in his left fibula, supervisor Dave Roberts said Friday before the shielding World Series champions opened an exceptionally expected three-game arrangement against the Padres.

Roberts said Bellinger had a sweep Thursday that showed the hairline crack. The chief said there is no plan for his return.

“At any rate, we understand what Cody’s managing,” Roberts said. “Certain players recuperate in an unexpected way, so I simply don’t have a clue where Cody will be at. … I can say serenely that it is anything but something every day, so we can sort of set it aside for later and let Cody do his recovery and go along with us ideally soon.”

Bellinger, the 2019 NL MVP, was harmed on April 5 when he was cleated by Athletics pitcher Reymin Guduan on a nearby play at a respectable starting point. He was put on the 10-day harmed list the following day and was qualified to be actuated on Friday.

Roberts said Bellinger is as yet taking swings and was going through an exercise in Los Angeles prior Friday.
