Rios (groin) is in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS against Atlanta on Wednesday. Rios was limited to pinch-hit duties over the first two games of the NLCS, but he'll enter the starting lineup for Game 3 at third base. Justin Turner will serve as the designated hitter for Wednesday's contest.
Rios (groin) will be limited to pinch-hit duty Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Rios made the NLCS roster after missing the NLDS due to a groin injury, but he's evidently still not fully healthy. Even if he were able to perform at 100 percent, however, it's not all that likely that he'd start many games during the series.
Rios (groin) was added to the Dodgers' roster ahead of the NLCS against the Braves on Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Rios missed the NLDS due to a groin injury, but the issue was evidently a fairly minor one. He'll be at least a power-hitting bench option during the upcoming series, as he hit a lopsided but quite effective .250/.301/.645 with eight homers in 83 trips to the plate this season. Gavin Lux, who took his place on the roster for the Division Series, was removed from the roster in a corresponding move.
Rios (groin) is participating in the Dodgers' workout Sunday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports. Rios has been dealing with a groin injury that kept him off the roster for the NLDS, but he reportedly has a chance to make the NLCS roster. He's been able to swing and run recently, and it's certainly encouraging that he was able to work out with the team on the eve of Game 1. If he joins the team for the NLCS, Rios should serve in a bench role during the series against Atlanta.
Rios (groin) has a chance to make the Dodgers' NLCS roster, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports. Rios was left off the team's NLDS roster due to a groin issue. The injury evidently wasn't a particularly serious one, as he's been able to swing and run in recent days. He doesn't appear to be fully healthy just yet, but the Dodgers would presumably love to have him as at least a bench bat, as he hit .250/.301/.645 with eight homers in 83 trips to the plate this season.
