Edwin Ríos was excluded from the Dodgers’ active roster for the National League Division series after sustaining a groin injury in a Sunday practice session at Globe Life Field in Arlington

« He was taking balls off the ground and making a play to his right, and throwing the ball at first base he changed his groin slightly, » manager Dave Roberts said ahead of Tuesday’s opener. « C he is better today than yesterday I hope he will continue to improve, and as we progress in this series I hope he will be available for the next one « 

With Ríos out, Roberts has said Max Muncy will be the alternate third baseman in this series if needed, and that Matt Beaty could play the role as well.

Ríos has hit 250/301/645 in 26 games this season, leading the team in slugging percentage thanks to eight homers and six doubles in just 83 appearances at home plate He started the wild card series opener against the Brewers last Wednesday night at designated hitter, going 0 for 3 with a step

That DH start in the NLDS opener went to Joc Pederson on Tuesday night in Arlington

The Dodgers went with 14 pitchers for the NLDS, one more than they had active in the previous round, adding right-hander Dylan Floro to the box mix Keibert Ruiz was also removed from the roster, leaving the Dodgers with two catchers, with Gavin Lux added for this round

Terrance Gore remained on the roster as a pinch runner, in a close decision to wear a third catcher Neither was used in the Wild Card series

« I think with Terrance he can come into play in every game, potentially, » said Roberts « His situation might not happen, but if that situation does arise, not have him on the roster would be quite expensive, in my opinion « 

Although Ruiz has not been active, Roberts said he plans to have Will Smith as a designated hitter in Game 2 when Austin Barnes catches up with Clayton Kershaw, as happened last Thursday and three times in the in the last three weeks of the regular season
