Dodgers' Dee Gordon Dislocates Right Thumb

The Los Angeles Dodgers won their second straight game on Wednesday, and captured their third win in their last four games, with their 4-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds, but the news at Dodger Stadium wasn't all good. Shortstop a Dee Gordon dislocated his right thumb on a stolen base in the eighth inning, and could miss some time.

Gordon jammed his thumb while sliding into third base, and immediately left the game with assistant trainer Greg Harrel.

"It felt like I hit something real hard," Gordon said. "As soon as I got up I knew I jammed it, and when I looked at my batting gloves and it looked disfigured."

The good news for Gordon is that x-rays showed nothing broken, but he will have an MRI exam on Thursday to determine the extend of the dislocation. Gordon's thumb was in a splint and heavily bandaged after the game.

The Dodgers open a four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday in Phoenix.
