Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts has been diagnosed with a bone spur in his right hip and his status is still day to day, but there are no plans at this time for him to have surgery, manager Dave said Friday. Roberts to reporters.
Roberts said there is no immediate timetable for Betts to return. He has received a pain relief injection, will try to overcome the injury when he returns and will address it after the season.
Betts, who is hitting .277 with 17 homers and 44 RBIs in 87 games for the defending World Series champs, flew back to Los Angeles from Philadelphia and was placed on the disabled list Wednesday.
He was pulled from an Aug. 6 game against the Los Angeles Angels in the sixth inning due to a sore right hip. He played the next day, but hasn’t played since.
Betts, the 2018 AL MVP with Boston, signed a 12-year, $ 365 million deal last season with the Dodgers through 2032. (ESPNDEPORTES)
