Julio Urias will get another start for Dodgers on Tuesday

first_imgThe combination left the top-rated minor-league pitching prospect with a 9.39 ERA and 2.35 WHIP after his first two major-league starts and Roberts was asked if it might have been a more conducive environment to let Urias make his big-league debut at home.“I don’t really know if there’s an ideal situation (for a big-league debut at age 19),” Roberts said. “When you’re talking about major-league hitters and major-league ballparks, there’s really no soft landing. I think you can script it or paint it anyway you want. But these are still very good hitters regardless of what opponent and where you’re playing.”Roberts said he saw progress from Urias in his second start and that was encouraging enough to give him a third start, at home this time.“He didn’t get the results he would like the first two starts,” Roberts said. “But the way the ball was coming out, the way he competes, the way he handled himself in New York and Chicago – we want to see him again. We want to get another look at him and give him another opportunity.”Rehab restarts The Dodgers have turned to Urias to fill a spot in their starting rotation in part because left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu has been unable to make any of the optimistic targets for his return from shoulder surgery over a year ago.After making three rehab starts in the minors, Ryu was scratched from a scheduled fourth start due to discomfort in his surgically-repaired shoulder. Ryu has restarted his throwing program and is playing catch from distances up to 120 feet, according to Roberts Saturday.There is no timetable for Ryu to throw off a mound again or re-start his rehab assignment in the minors. When he does, Roberts estimated the left-hander will need to make “at least four” minor-league starts before being considered for a return to the majors.Meanwhile, Brandon McCarthy also had a minor setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. He has returned to the mound and is scheduled to throw a three-inning (approximately 60 pitches) simulated game to hitters in the next couple days, according to Roberts. At least one more sim game will follow that session before McCarthy will start a minor-league injury-rehabilitation assignment.In both cases, it is apparent that even the best-case scenario — something that has only been a wasted exercise in optimism to date (particularly in Ryu’s case) — would not put either pitcher back in the Dodgers’ rotation until after the All-Star break next month.AlsoHowie Kendrick returned to the starting lineup after missing two games with a minor shoulder injury suffered Wednesday at Wrigley Field. … Former major-league reliever Joe Thatcher exercised an opt-out clause in his contract and was given his release by the Dodgers. Thatcher, 34, had a 3.60 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 17 appearances for Triple-A Oklahoma City. … Outfielder James Ramsey cleared waivers and was outrighted to the OKC Dodgers. Ramsey was designated for assignment last week in order to clear a 40-man roster spot for reliever Casey Fien. Ramsey was batting .222 for Oklahoma City. The Dodgers looked around, considered their options — and found none.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed Saturday that 19-year-old left-hander Julio Urias will make at least one more start in the majors. He is scheduled to pitch again Tuesday at home against the Colorado Rockies.“We felt he did throw the ball well in Chicago,” Roberts said. “To get him another start here at home is great for him and great for us. He deserves it.”Urias made his major-league debut in New York just over a week ago and lasted only 2 2/3 innings against the Mets. In his second start, he lasted five innings but gave up three home runs and six runs to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
