Status Uncertain After MRI

Friday, June 5

Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports an MRI showed no signs of serious injury to Kendrick’s knee:

Matthew Moreno of Dodgers Nation notes manager Don Mattingly kept a trip to the disabled list on the table if the infielder doesn’t notice improvement:

Kendrick joined the Dodgers as part of an offseason deal with the crosstown rival Los Angeles Angels. He’s enjoying another solid season at the plate with a .347 on-base percentage and five home runs through 52 games.

Quite simply, it’s difficult to know when he may be available for the Dodgers again. He could wake up Friday, feel better and jump right back into the lineup. Or, if the issue is still bothersome, he may need a stint on the DL to give it some rest.

The situation should become clearer in the next few days.
