The Los Angeles Dodgers have suffered many major blows to their pitching staff this season, and they experienced another scare earlier this week when starter Mike Bolsinger was hit by a comebacker during a minor-league start.

Manager Don Mattingly told reporters Wednesday that Bolsinger, who was hit on his right throwing arm by a comebacker during a start with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate in Oklahoma City, Okla., avoided serious injury in the incident.

Bolsinger, who is 5-3 with a 2.83 ERA and 78 strikeouts in 16 starts in his first season with the Dodgers, is on schedule for his next start.
