Injuries continue to appear on the mound of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
On the 21st (Korean time), the Dodgers team placed Julio Urias (27), who suffered from a bad left hamstring, on the 15-day disabled list (IL). Urias started against the St. Louis Cardinals on the 19th and became a losing pitcher with 6 runs in 3 innings. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts’ struggles deepened as the injury was confirmed as a matter of course.
According to Yahoo Sports, the Dodgers mound is more like an “injury ward.” Walker Buehler is undergoing rehabilitation after undergoing Tommy John surgery. Here, Dustin May (right forearm), Ryan Peppiot (left groin), and Michael Grove (right groin) are listed on the IL for different reasons. In particular, Yurias, Buehler, and May are the team’s key selection resources.
The bullpen situation is not much different. Blake Treinen (right shoulder), Daniel Hudson (left knee), Alex Reyes (right shoulder), and JP Fire Reizen (right shoulder) broke away from the line. Yahoo Sports said, “The Dodgers, which have valued the pitcher’s depth (player base) among MLB teams over the past 10 years, have lost so many pitchers that their available starting resources are running out.” Currently, the Dodgers are in a very cautious situation as Tony Gonsolin and Noah Syndergaard, who are included in the starting rotation, also have a history of injuries.메이저놀이터
There is a way to use prospects in the team such as Bobby Miller (24) and Gavin Stone (25). However, it is unclear whether it will be a reliable alternative in long-term races. Miller had a season minor league Triple-A ERA of 5.65. In his big league debut on the 4th, Stone was sluggish with 8 hits and 5 runs in 4 innings. Yahoo Sports predicted, “Grove’s return is near, but his presence will not stop the Dodgers from finding an answer (injury gap).” Grove started 4 games before the injury, recorded 1 loss and an ERA of 8.44.
For the time being, the management of the injured has become more important for the Dodgers. With a win rate in the 60% range (29 wins, 18 losses), it maintains its lead in the National League West, but there are too many injuries.
