Dodgers’ Mookie Betts to go on IL with cracked rib

Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Mookie Betts is going on the injured list due to a cracked rib, manager Dave Roberts confirmed Saturday.

Betts was scratched from the Dodgers’ lineup Friday night with what the team originally called a right rib contusion, but an MRI revealed the full extent of the injury.

The five-time All-Star and former AL MVP is slashing .273/.349/.535 with 17 home runs and 40 RBIs in 60 games this season.

Roberts said the Dodgers will likely recall Zach McKinstry from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.
