Dodgers’ rotation has depth to go with star power
It may seem like everything has gone right for the Los Angeles Dodgers this year, but that's actually not the case.
Clayton Kershaw hasn't pitched since July 23 because of a back injury, and promising left-hander Julio Urias was lost to shoulder problems.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers tried to do everything they could to protect the young, slight frame of prized prospect Julio Urias. They limited the left-hander's innings, had him stop midseason once for a cosmetic surgery, delayed his start to his 2017 season.
Yet there is only so much a team can manage. The Dodgers announced Friday that Urias will need shoulder surgery and will miss the rest of the season.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles is handling his latest setback with the positive mindset that got him to the major leagues.
Toles has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will need season-ending surgery. He was on crutches Wednesday and said he expects six-to-seven onths of rehabilitation and a return in time for spring training.
"I want to stay positive," Toles said. "There's no sense in being distraught over an injury. In sports, it happens."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Andrew McCutchen doubled to lead off the seventh inning, ending Julio Urias' no-hit bid for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.
The Pittsburgh Pirates star ripped a 2-2 pitch into the left field corner that bounced over the wall. Left fielder Andrew Toles appeared to injure his right knee attempting to make a diving catch and left the game.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Less than 24 hours after losing to the Giants in 10 innings, the Los Angeles Dodgers turned the tables and managed just their second win in their last nine games in San Francisco.
Run-scoring singles by Andrew Toles and Justin Turner in the 10th inning led the Dodgers to a 5-1 victory Thursday after Los Angeles pitcher Julio Urias made a solid start in his 2017 debut. Urias allowed one run in 5 2-3 innings after being recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City before the game.
Urias makes 1st start of 2017, Dodgers option Liberatore
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Julio Urias made his first start of the season for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday after being recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City, and the Dodgers optioned reliever Adam Liberatore to Oklahoma City.
The 20-year-old Urias went 5-2 in four stints with the Dodgers last season. He became the youngest starting pitcher in major league postseason history when he took the mound in Game 4 of the NL Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs.
Projected record: 96-66Projected run differential: +134The Dodgers are the lone team projected with a better record and run differential than the Cubs. Fangraphs projects Los Angeles as the best-pitching team in the league, which is not difficult to do when starting the rotation with Clayton Kershaw. Behind Kershaw are Rich Hill, Kenta Maeda, Scott Kazmir, Brandon McCarthy, Alex Wood and Julio Urias. If Los Angeles gets roughly 130 average starts from some combination of that group, a typically...

Urias, Dodgers unravel in 4th inning of Game 4 blowout loss

In one miserable night at Chavez Ravine, they squandered a chance to take control of this series and lost their opportunity to win the pennant at home.
