Hector Olivera lands on disabled list at AAA Oklahoma City with Grade 1 hamstring strain

1 Comment

Hector Olivera’s big league debut has been delayed.

According to beat writer Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register, the Cuban infielder landed on the disabled list Tuesday at Triple-A Oklahoma City after being diagnosed with a Grade 1 left hamstring strain.

It’s the least-severe type of hamstring strain and shouldn’t cost him more than a couple of weeks. Olivera will do his rehabbing at Camelback Ranch, the Dodgers’ spring training facility in Arizona.

The 30-year-old has been impressive so far in the minors, batting .358/.393/.528 with two home runs and seven RBI in 13 games between Double-A and Triple-A.

Olivera signed a six-year, $62.5 million deal with Los Angeles in late March.
