The Los Angeles Dodgers placed outfielder Mookie Betts on the injured list with a cracked rib on Saturday.

The Californian club does not know when its star player will be able to return to the game.

“Within a week, we will learn more and we will have a better idea,” said manager Dave Roberts, whose remarks were reported by the daily newspaper “Orange Country Register”.

Betts was injured in a collision with teammate Cody Bellinger during Wednesday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels 4-1. He’s missed the Dodgers’ last two games.

“We are losing one of the best players in major league baseball. It’s a blow, but we will review it as soon as possible,” added Roberts.

So far in 2022, Betts has maintained a .273 batting average. He hit 67 hits, including 17 home runs, in 245 plate appearances.
