Dodgers Star Out For Extended Period of Time

6/11/22

The Dodgers will be without star pitcher Walker Buehler for an extended period of time.

The team’s No. 1 starter will be out for at least six to eight weeks, after an MRI revealed an elbow strain. There are no plans for surgery, and Buehler is expected to return this season, but that depends on how well he recovers.

Before Saturday’s game, the Dodgers had already placed Buehler on the 15-day injured list.

Buehler left Friday’s start against the Giants after four innings due to elbow discomfort, setting up the MRI for Saturday.

It was yet another setback in what had already been the worst season of his career, with a 4.04 ERA, 1.2 WHIP, and 8.0 strikeouts per nine innings, the lowest of his career. Buehler had just managed to complete the best regular-season of his career last year , finishing fourth in Cy Young Award voting with a 2.20 ERA and 212 strikeouts in 207.2 innings pitched.

The absence of the right-handed pitcher will extend a frustrating season for the Dodgers’ rotation depth. Earlier in the season, the team had been without Clayton Kershaw and Andrew Heaney for a significant  amount of time. However, on Saturday, Kershaw made his return Saturday. Tony Gonsolin (1.58 ERA) and Tyler Anderson (3.07 ERA) have stepped up to keep the team’s rotation competitive, but the pitching staff’s season has not gone as intended.

After a blazing hot start to the season, the Dodgers have dropped four of their last six games. Now, they must overcome yet another obstacle to reclaim their NL West crown.
