Dodgers’ Walker Buehler pulled from start with rib soreness

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers starter Walker Buehler has been pulled from a start with rib soreness, another blow to an injury-depleted Los Angeles pitching staff.
The Dodgers announced Buehler’s injury Friday night. Buehler was perfect through four innings against the Atlanta Braves and still cruising with one out in the sixth when manager Dave Roberts and trainer Nathan Lucero went to the mound. After a lengthy discussion, Buehler was pulled. He didn’t show any obvious signs of injury.
The rookie right-hander had just struck out Johan Camargo when Roberts and Lucero ran into the field. Switch-pitcher Pat Venditte relieved Buehler.
Buehler has been a bright spot during a rugged year for the Dodgers’ rotation.
