Quick Glance: Dodgers' Yamamoto Exits Early in Loss to Royals
  • After his initial scheduled start was postponed, Dodgers pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto prematurely leaves the game in a 7-2 defeat against the Kansas City Royals.

  • An evident decrease in the speed of his four-seam fastball in the initial inning indicated an issue with Dodgers' right-hander Yoshinobu Yamamoto on Saturday night.

  • An intense 12-pitch battle in the sixth inning between Dodgers reliever Blake Treinen and Royals left fielder MJ Melendez altered the course of the game, resulting in a game-changing Grand Slam by Melendez.

  • Max Muncy's recuperation from a right rib-cage injury will extend into a second month, delaying his ability to swing a bat for at least another week after being placed on the injured list on May 17.
