Betts appeared to tweak the finger on a swing in the fifth inning. It didn’t seem to have a big impact immediately, as he homered later in the plate appearance.

Betts has been everything the Dodgers hoped for when he signed his massive extension, starting to flash power at the plate while wowing with his defense. Fortunately, at first glance, this injury doesn’t appear too serious.
