SAN FRANCISCO – The Dodgers placed outfielder A.J. Pollock on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation on Tuesday. Left-handed-hitting infielder Matt Beaty was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.

Pollock has had two operations on the elbow, which was fractured in 2010 and required a plate and screws to repair. In ’16 it was discovered that the elbow broke again, as one of the screws was compromised, and a second operation was necessary that also replaced the plate.

Pollock signed a four-year, $55 million contract with the Dodgers over the offseason. This is Pollock’s fifth stint on the injured list. While with Arizona, he was sidelined with a broken thumb, a broken wrist and a groin strain.

Beaty, 26, was the 12th-round selection by the Dodgers in the 2014 MLB Draft out of Belmont University. The former Belmont Bruin has been with the Dodgers’ organization for five seasons, and this will be his first Major League promotion after being added to the 40-man roster on Nov. 20, 2018. Prior to the promotion, Beaty was batting .277 (23-for-83) with two homers and 10 RBIs in 22 games for Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers now have six right-handed-hitting position players and six left-handed-hitting position players.
