Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday he is trying to maintain “a ray of hope” that Max Muncy can rejoin the team in late October after first baseman injured his left elbow on Sunday. .
Roberts said Muncy did not tear his ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) and will not need surgery.
He said Muncy is known to “heal quickly.”
Roberts also said Tommy John surgery “is not on the table” for ace Clayton Kershaw.
