After Hyun-Jin Ryu was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left groin strain, a roster spot opened up for the Dodgers. With the open spot, LA called up right-hander JT Chargois from triple-A.
Chargois has appeared in one game this year with Oklahoma City, allowing one run and striking out two in 1 2⁄3 innings of work. He appeared in 39 games with the big-league club last year, going 2-4 with a 3.34 ERA. He had 40 strikeouts in 32 1⁄3 innings.
Since Ryu is going to miss his next start, the Dodgers are unclear as to who will be taking his place in the rotation.
#Dodgers will need a starter when Ryu's spot comes up on Saturday. Roberts eliminated the idea of a "bullpen game" given how much work 'pen has had already this year. Acknowledged promoting a starter for one game is "a possibility. We're going to continue to talk about that."— Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) April 9, 2019
Sticking on Ryu, Dave Roberts said he’s feeling better today. He’ll throw a bullpen soon to test the groin. This is certainly good news, as an injury to this same muscle sidelined Ryu for three months last season. There’s no timetable yet for his return, but with how things are looking, it seems safe to say he won’t be missing three months again.
It now looks like Julio Urías will probably make a fourth start. It was expected that he would be heading to the bullpen with either Kershaw or Hill’s return approaching.
- Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to make his second rehab start tonight, this time with the Tulsa Drillers
- Rich Hill threw a bullpen session today, throwing about 40 pitches. Felt no problem with the knee. Up next is likely another bullpen, with a simulated game after
