ANDl Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly will miss the remainder of the NL Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves due to a injury on the right biceps.
Nevertheless, the rules say that a player substituted due to injury cannot return in the next series, so also miss the World Series in the event of a Dodgers comeback.
The pitcher was opener of the fifth game in the series, that finished 11-2 in favor of the LA team, what kept alive the search for the two-time championship.
Roberts added that David Price, a left-handed pitcher, could replace the injured Kelly. “We considered several candidates and David is on the list,” said the Dodgers manager.
With the series 3 to 2 in favor of the Braves, the Los Angeles team will leave his stadium and go to Truist Park to try to come back from a 1-3as well as he did a year ago, when he won his first championship since 1998.
