1B,3B - LAD - IL60
Edwin Rios will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his right shoulder.
Rios was placed on the 10-day IL last week with shoulder inflammation, but it now appears that his season will come to an early close due to a partially torn labrum. Rios had a rough start and end to the 2021 campaign, finishing with a .078 batting average through 25 games played.
The Dodgers placed 1B/3B Edwin Rios on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation.
Rios has had a disastrous start to the season. He doesn't need to be rostered in fantasy leagues of any size right now.
Edwin Rios went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in the Dodgers 5-1 win over the A's on Tuesday in Oakland.
Rios was able to get the start at third base with Justin Turner slotting into the lineup as the DH. Rios crushed a Chris Bassitt curveball over the wall in right-center field for his first tater of the year. Rios has tremendous upside, which is capped due to the fact he can't get everyday at-bats at the moment. He's a solid deep league stash or streaming option in standard leagues whenever he's starting, though. His power upside combined with the lineup protection he receives on the Dodgers is a productive combination.
Dodgers first baseman Edwin Rios (hamstring) is scheduled to play in the Cactus League game Friday.
Rios has not played in a Cactus League game since March 19th. After doing some recovering and running, he's one step closer to playing with the Dodgers this season. In 2020, Rios had 19 hits in 76 at-bats with the Dodgers.
Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Edwin Rios "has earned more playing time at 3B," per Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.
Roberts ruled out Justin Turner, who they re-signed last week, playing at 1B to get Rios more time at the hot corner but he acknowledged that the 26-year-old certainly deserved more playing time. Turner, who is 36-years-old will get more off days, which should clear a path for Rios to play more. Rios slugged eight home runs with a .946 OPS over 76 at-bats last year and has been a popular late-round pick in fantasy drafts. The Turner re-signing squashed some of the hype but he's still an intriguing name to watch.
