Kenta Maeda and Ross Stripling to move to bullpen

Dodger manager Dave Roberts announced role changes this morning

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Colorado Rockies Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Manager Dave Roberts announced at his pre-game media scrum that right-handed pitchers Kenta Maeda and Ross Stripling will be going to the bullpen. He also said left-handed pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu will be activated next week to start against the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium.

Roberts also said that left-handed pitcher Julio Urias will make his next rehab appearance with Tulsa next week. Given the moves made with Maeda and Stripling, perhaps the timetable for Urias will not be sped up.

Originally, the plan for Urias was to build him up as a multi-inning reliever, there was thought that could change. Time will tell.

And while there has been no change with Kenley Jansen, Andrew Friedman did say when the team expects to know more.

The Dodgers bullpen situation remains the same for the next two games, expect player movement to begin next Tuesday if not sooner.
