Dodgers recall Julio Urías

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Los Angeles Dodgers Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

With three weeks left in the season, the Dodgers have recalled 22-year-old Julio Urías from Oklahoma City.

Urías last pitched for the Dodgers on May 20, 2017, where he allowed seven runs in 2⅓ innings. A month later, it was announced he would undergo season-ending anterior capsule surgery on his left shoulder. He was expected to miss 12-14 months.

Urías has appeared in eight minor league games in the regular season, plus two more playoff games with OKC. In 13⅓ innings, the left-hander owned a 6.08 ERA. He had 20 strikeouts and eight walks.

Though most of his major league games have come as a starter, Urías may become a valuable piece coming out of the bullpen.

This also means that Urías will not use up an option year in 2018.
