Los Angeles Dodgers Injury News: 5-time All-Star pitcher prepares to make his return home to strengthen National League leaders; Pitcher who underwent Tommy John surgery in 2020 is expected to rejoin team this month

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been doing remarkably well this season. Offensively, the club leads Major League Baseball in runs per game.

The scariest thing about the Los Angeles Dodgers is that the club isn’t even at full strength. Pitching-wise, the team has dealt with numerous losses, including suspensions, and some key members of the team are working their way back to the field from injuries.
