Dodgers' Cody Bellinger: Absent from Tuesday's lineup

Bellinger (knee) isn't starting Tuesday against the Reds, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Bellinger was spotted jogging on the field prior to the game, but he never managed to get up to full speed, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. It's evident his knee is still bothering him, but manager Dave Roberts indicated Bellinger is available off the bench Tuesday and could return to the lineup Wednesday, according to Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times. With Bellinger out of the starting nine, Alex Verdugo will slot in at right field.
