As the troubles of the 2021 Los Angeles Dodgers continue in extra-inning contests, so do their woes in the injury department.
By now, you would have thought fans might have learned their lessons, but there still seems to linger a ray of hope of how the team might perform when fully healthy.

One day after the Dodgers executed a picture-perfect 8-0 victory against the NL West-leading Giants, the Los Angeles offense went missing once again, this time resulting in a 5-0 defeat. The loss closed a three-game set between the division rivals, with the Giants winning two contests and lengthening their lead to three full games.
