The Dodgers have put both Cody Bellinger and Alex Wood on the 10-day disabled list, the team announced.
Bellinger heads to the DL with a sprained right ankle after suffering the injury Saturday. Los Angeles has recalled Josh Ravin from Triple-A Oklahoma City to fill his place on the roster. The move is retroactive to Sunday.
Wood goes to the DL with left SC joint inflammation. The Dodgers have recalled Brock Stewart from Triple-A.
Bellinger and Wood are the latest to join the Dodgers’ recently growing disabled list. Clayton Kershaw, Yu Darvish and Brandon McCarthy are also currently sidelined with injuries. They have not stopped the Dodgers, though, as they are running away with the NL West with an MLB-best 88-35 record.
Which is why in the case of both Bellinger and Wood, they are exercising caution.
The 22-year-old Bellinger has become one of the game’s top young stars since being promoted to the big leagues on April 25. The All-Star first baseman and outfielder, a fourth-round selection of the Dodgers back in the 2013 MLB Draft, currently has a slash line of .274/.356/.968 with 34 home runs and 79 RBI. His 34 homers are ranked second in the National League and fifth in the majors.
The 26-year-old Wood, who is on the DL with the same injury for the second time this season, is having his best campaign of his five-year career in the majors. The lefty starter has posted a 14-1 record with a 2.41 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP in 123 1⁄3 innings pitched. He also earned his first trip to the All-Star game this year.
