Dodgers’ Dave Roberts makes major roster move ahead of Game 6 vs. Braves

The injury woes for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the postseason have continued to pile on.

Veteran reliever Joe Kelly was called upon to start in the Dodgers’ NLCS Game 5 clash against the Atlanta Braves. Kelly allowed a two-run home run to Freddie Freeman in the first inning and was later removed from the game due to a right biceps strain injury.

Roberts noted after the Dodgers’ 11-2 win over the Braves on Thursday that this injury for Kelly will sideline him for the remainder of the postseason.

As a result, Roberts officially announced on Friday that Kelly was removed from the Dodgers’ NLCS roster and replaced by veteran pitcher David Price.
