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.
Edwin Rios went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Dodgers 10-2 loss to the Braves in Game 4 of the NLCS.
Rios was responsible for all of LA's offensive output as they only mustered three hits and two runs in the lopsided defeat. He gave the Dodgers an early 1-0 lead with a solo tater off of Bryse Wilson in the third inning and picked up his second RBI in the seventh with a sacrifice fly. LA now faces elimination in a crucial Game 5 on Friday.
The Dodgers added Edwin Rios (groin) to their NLCS roster.
The team also added LHP Alex Wood while removing Gavin Lux and Terrance Gore. Rios wasn't on the NLDS roster due to a groin strain but he took batting practice on Sunday and is good to go. He'll serve in a pinch-hitting role against the Braves.
