Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Still limited
Rios (groin) will be limited to pinch-hit duty Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.Rios made the NLCS roster after missing the NLDS due to a groin injury, but he's evidently still not fully healthy. Even if he were able to perform at 100 percent, however, it's not all that likely that he'd start many games during the series.
Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Returns to roster for NLCS
Rios (groin) was added to the Dodgers' roster ahead of the NLCS against the Braves on Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.Rios missed the NLDS due to a groin injury, but the issue was evidently a fairly minor one. He'll be at least a power-hitting bench option during the upcoming series, as he hit a lopsided but quite effective .250/.301/.645 with eight homers in 83 trips to the plate this season. Gavin Lux, who took his place on the roster for the Division Series, was removed from the roster in a corresponding move.
