This was expected after manager Dave Roberts told reporters following Monday’s loss to the San Francisco Giants that Pollock had an elbow infection.
In a corresponding move, the team recalled infielder Matt Beaty from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Pollock has been plagued by injuries in recent years; he hasn’t played more than 113 games in a season since he was an All-Star in 2015.
The 31-year-old is batting .223 in 28 games this season, his first with the Dodgers. He agreed to a four-year, $55 million deal with Los Angeles in January after spending his first seven MLB seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
