Dodgers: Mookie Betts Likely to Avoid Offseason Operation on Hip

In positive news from this offseason so far, it looks like Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts will thankfully avoid going under the knife this winter. First, the 2021 All-Star missed several weeks while dealing with a hip issue that, when he wasn’t on the injured list, limited him to second base for a couple stretches.

He received a pair of cortisone injections during the season that ultimately kept him healthy enough to play through the playoffs.
