Dodgers Recall Julio Urias

Published

The Los Angeles Dodgers have recalled left-hander Julio Urias from Triple-A Oklahoma City, marking his first stint in the majors since he underwent shoulder surgery last June.

Urias was one of the major’s 10 best prospects prior to his debut back in 2016, and when he arrived in May of 2016 he posted an impressive 3.39 ERA over 77 innings with 84 strikeouts against only 31 walks, making many believe he would be a building block for the Dodgers’.

His shoulder surgery put everything on hold and will now look to recapture the magic that he flashed in 2016.

The Dodgers had previously tried to acquire Harper, when the Nationals waived him around the waiver deadline last season.

Additionally, the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies are both expected to meet with Harper face-to-face in the near future, per the report.

Dodgers Release Erik Goeddel, Zac Rosscup

The Los Angeles Dodgers have released veteran right hander Erik Goeddel along with left handed pitcher Zac Rosscup, according to MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick.

Goeddel and Rosscup were both designated for assignment earlier this week as Los Angeles was working out their 40 man roster ahead of the deadline to protect players from the Rule 5 draft.

The 30-year old Goeddel pitched to the tune of a 2.95 ERA this season, splitting time between the Dodgers and the Seattle Mariners, but he struggled with control as he walked 20 batters, threw 3 wild pitches, and hit a batter over 36 2.3 innings played.

Rosscup was claimed off waivers from the Colorado Rockies organization in July of last season and pitched 11 1/3 innings out of the Dodgers’ bullpen.

Dodgers Offered Yasiel Puig to Nationals for Bryce Harper

Published

The Los Angeles Dodgers have reportedly been interested in acquiring Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper, and attempted to land him via trade last season before Washington ultimately decided to keep him for the remainder of the year.

According to the Los Angeles Times’ Jorge Castillo, the Dodgers offered Yasiel Puig as part of a potential deal to land Harper from Washington, but were unsuccessful in their attempt to pry the outfield slugger from the Nationals.

Washington had placed Harper on waivers but pulled him off when the Dodgers claimed him.

While the deal didn’t come to fruition, it’s fun to imagine what the Dodgers could have done with Harper in their lineup, and to wonder if it would have changed the outcome of the World Series, which they lost to the Boston Red Sox.
