Mookie Betts was nailed with a 95 MPH heater in the ninth inning of the Dodgers 4-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners last night. Betts was down on the ground in obvious pain after taking the Rafael Montero pitch to the inside of the forearm.

He did stay in the game but not for long as the next batter, Corey Seager, grounded into a double-play to end the game.

Manager Dave Roberts mentioned there was a lot of "soft tissue" on the right forearm after the game, but they wouldn't have a clear status update on Betts until he gets to the stadium today.

LA has jumped out to a 13-4 record despite already having superstar slugger Cody Bellinger out with a shin fracture since April 6th. The last thing they need is Betts to join Bellinger on the IL. The Dodgers continue their series with Seattle today with a day game at 4:10 p.m. ET, so expect Betts to be out of the lineup and look elsewhere at FanDuel for outfield help.

Over at FanDuel Sportsbook, the Dodgers are heavy favorites on the moneyline at -188 with Julio Urias on the mound. The Mariners counter with Marco Gonzales and are -105 with a +1.5 run line.
