Joe Kelly out of playoffs with Dodgers due to injury

The pitcher could be replaced by David Price.

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.
