The Dodgers’ outfield has taken a little bit of a beating this Spring Training. For the most part, it’s luckily just been the aches and pains of camp that are expected. For Mookie Betts, it was more of a food-related issue. Joc Pederson had a sore side that has kept him out of games, but that is changing.
Joc Pederson will play five innings in a Minor League game tomorrow, his first game action this Spring after injuring his right hip.

Joc has not been able to pick up a bat for the Dodgers aside from a few workouts this week. Pederson experienced a side issue earlier in camp and has been slow-played until this point. Him getting into games is a good sign though, even if they are minor league games. At this point, getting consistent at-bats is all he needs to be ready by Opening Day.
Mookie Betts was a late scratch from Friday evening’s lineup. Dave Roberts described the issue as a stomach problem. Betts is once again out of the lineup Saturday and will not play until Wednesday night.
Dave Roberts said Mookie Betts still has stomach discomfort. Won’t play until Wednesday night (Tuesday is a day off).
