Top Zach McKinstry News

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Resumes defensive work

    McKinstry (neck) was fielding groundballs prior to Thursday's game against the Padres, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    McKinstry landed on the injured list Tuesday, so the fact that he was able to participate in some activity so quickly is a positive sign. He's eligible to be activated July 7 and may not require much more than the minimum time period to recover.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Moves to injured list

    McKinstry (neck) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    McKinstry was scratched from Sunday's contest with neck stiffness and was expected to be sidelined for at least a couple more days, and he'll now make his way to the injured list. Jake Lamb had his contract selected in a corresponding move.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Needs more time

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that McKinstry (neck) will likely be held out "another couple of days," the Associated Press reports.

    McKinstry was expected to start Sunday against Atlanta, but he was scratched from the lineup after experiencing neck stiffness. The utility man appears to still be dealing with the issue, though there hasn't yet been discussion of an IL stint. "I talked with him earlier [Monday] and he still didn't have much range of motion," Roberts said. "We'll probably give it another couple of days."

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Not starting Monday

    McKinstry (neck) isn't starting Monday's game against the Rockies, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    McKinstry was scratched from Sunday's lineup against Atlanta due to neck stiffness and will take a seat for a second consecutive game. Trayce Thompson is starting in right field and batting ninth once again.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Scratched with neck stiffness

    McKinstry was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta due to neck stiffness, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    McKinstry was initially slated to start in right field Sunday but was removed from the starting lineup just over an hour before first pitch. Trayce Thompson is taking over in right field and batting ninth.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Promoted Sunday

    McKinstry was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.

    The 27-year-old will take the roster spot of Mookie Betts, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with a cracked rib in a corresponding move. McKinstry has appeared in only four major-league games this season and is 1-for-5 with a two-run home run, and he should receive some opportunities in right field while Betts is sidelined. McKinstry has hit well at Oklahoma City this year with a .328/.414/.463 slash line in 46 contests.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Likely Betts replacement

    McKinstry will likely get recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    This wouldn't generally be that interesting for fantasy, but Mookie Betts was placed on the 10-day injured list with a cracked rib, so McKinstry could see playing time against right-handed pitching in the short term. He is hitting .330/.417/.469 with three home runs in 45 games at Triple-A.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Optioned to Triple-A

    McKinstry was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.

    McKinstry will return to Oklahoma City after being recalled last Thursday, going 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in his only appearance Friday. The move was made in correspondence with Max Muncy (elbow) being activated from the 10-day injured list. McKinstry will likely remain a top candidate for a call-up as the season goes on.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Swats homer Friday

    McKinstry went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 6-1 win against the Mets.

    McKinstry was called up from Triple-A on Thursday and saw his first big-league action in over a month Friday. He struck out in his first at-bat before launching a 376-foot, two-run shot to right field in the fourth inning. McKinstry has some pop -- he hit seven long balls in 158 at-bats with the Dodgers last season -- but isn't likely to receive enough playing time in the majors to be a viable fantasy asset.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Recalled from Triple-A

    McKinstry was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.

    Since Kevin Pillar (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list, McKinstry will rejoin the Dodgers as a utility man after spending a month in the minors. Over 38 games in Oklahoma City this year, McKinstry has slashed .338/.424/.464 with two homers, 31 runs and 19 RBI. While the 27-year-old has some defensive versatility, he should serve as a depth option since Cody Bellinger (hip) is back in action Thursday.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Demoted to Triple-A

    The Dodgers optioned McKinstry to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    McKinstry and reliever Carson Fulmer (designated for assignment) were casualties with the Dodgers having to reduce their active roster from 28 to 26 men ahead of Monday's deadline. The 27-year-old has received just one plate appearance across multiple short stints with the Dodgers this season, but he should get the chance to play on an everyday basis at Oklahoma City.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Brought back by Dodgers

    McKinstry was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    McKinstry was sent to the minors earlier in the week, but the Dodgers were able to bring him up just a few days later with pitcher Mitch White (illness) landing on the injured list. McKinstry has already been involved in several transactions this season, so his latest big-league stay could be brief.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Dropped from active roster

    McKinstry was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    McKinstry had been on the active roster since Wednesday (aside from a brief blip Sunday when he was optioned and quickly recalled again) but received just a single plate appearance. His defensive versatility should continue to earn him the occasional opportunity, but he doesn't appear to be close to a regular role. Andre Jackson was called up to take his place on the roster.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Recalled ahead of Sunday's game

    The Dodgers recalled McKinstry from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to Sunday's game against the Padres, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Los Angeles had optioned McKinstry to Triple-A earlier in the day to make room on the 28-man active roster for reliever Reyes Moronta, but the utility man will end up rejoining the big club following David Price's surprise move to the IL just minutes before Sunday's series finale. McKinstry will give the Dodgers some extra versatility off the bench, but he's not expected to see meaningful at-bats while he's up with the big club.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Heads to minors

    McKinstry was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    McKintry has been with the big-league club since Wednesday and will move back to the minors without appearing in a game. He has yet to see MLB action this season and has a .404/.448/.673 slash line in 12 games with Oklahoma City.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Moves up to big club

    The Dodgers recalled McKinstry from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

    Starting pitcher Andrew Heaney (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list to open up a spot on the active roster for McKinstry, who will give the Dodgers another utility option off the bench for Wednesday's game against Atlanta with Gavin Lux (back) unavailable for the series finale. Lux is expected to return to the lineup for Friday's game in San Diego, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Dodgers elected to replace McKinstry on the roster with a pitcher at some point this weekend.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Added to taxi squad

    McKinstry was added to the Dodgers' taxi squad Wednesday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times repots.

    McKinstry has been in the minors since the start of the regular season, but he'll join the Dodgers as a precaution ahead of their road trip to San Diego and Arizona since Gavin Lux (back) is day-to-day. However, Lux is expected to return to the lineup Friday, and manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that the team doesn't currently have plans to add McKinstry to the active roster.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Optioned to minors

    McKinstry was optioned to minor-league camp Tuesday.

    McKinstry filled a utility role on-and-off for the Dodgers last season and won't open 2022 in the majors. The 26-year-old hit .215/.263/.405 in 172 plate appearances in the majors during the 2021 campaign.

  • Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Not on NLDS roster

    McKinstry is not on the Dodgers' roster for the NLDS, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    The 26-year-old was on the roster for the NL Wild Card Game against the Cardinals but didn't make an appearance off the bench. Walker Buehler and David Price are on the roster for the NLDS, while McKinstry and Luke Raley have been left off.
