Rios (groin) is in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS against Atlanta on Wednesday.

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.

The 26-year-old has a .946 OPS with eight homers in 83 plate appearances this season, but he was wasn't included on the roster for the NLDS after tweaking his groin over the weekend. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but manager Dave Roberts noted, "obviously it's significant enough for us not to include [Rios] on the active roster."
Rios is not on the roster for the NLDS against the Padres, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Rios impressed in a part-time role this season, hitting eight homers in 83 plate appearances while slashing .250/.301/.645. The Dodgers evidently wanted another middle-infield option rather than a corner bat, however, as they dropped Rios ahead of the NLDS and replaced him with Gavin Lux.

Rios will start at third base and will bat seventh Sunday against the Rockies, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Los Angeles is resting Mookie Betts and Chris Taylor in the series finale, and manager Dave Roberts could look to give more lineup regulars days off during the final week of the season, as the 38-15 Dodgers are well on their way to securing the National League's top record. With that in mind, Rios could be one of the primary beneficiaries for added playing time over the final week. He's already picked up starts in the Dodgers' previous three contests, going 4-for-12 with a home run, a double, a walk, three runs and two RBI over that stretch.
Rios went 2-for-3 with a solo home run during Thursday's win at Coors Field.

The 26-year-old will fill the roster spot and field position of Justin Turner, who landed on the injured list with a hamstring strain. Rios was sidelined since mid-August with a hamstring strain of his own, but he's ready to go after spending a couple weeks on the shelf. He should see some chances at third base in Turner's absence, though Chris Taylor, Enrique Hernandez and Max Muncy could also factor into the mix.
