Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start CINCINNATI — Julio Urias’ long road back from major shoulder surgery could land him back on a major-league mound this week.The 22-year-old left-hander was recalled by the Dodgers on Monday after Triple-A Oklahoma City was eliminated from the postseason on Sunday. Urias made four appearances for the OKC Dodgers, including two in their playoff series.When he gets into a game with the Dodgers it will be his first major-league action since May 20, 2017. Urias was sent down to Triple-A after that start and started twice for OKC before he was shut down with a sore shoulder. On June 27, 2017, he had surgery to repair the anterior capsule in his throwing shoulder.“I can’t lie. There was a time I didn’t know if I would come back to a major-league mound after the surgery,” Urias said Monday through an interpreter. “Thank God He helped me get here and hopefully that’s something that happens again (pitching in a major-league game).

He allowed nine runs on 12 hits and eight walks while striking out 20.“Every outing starting with the ones in Rancho Cucamonga I was feeling better every time,” Urias said. “I was getting warmer faster and the next day I was feeling great and the same day I pitched I was feeling good. Every time I was out there, I felt like I was progressing.”There were times this summer when Dodgers manager Dave Roberts and the front office mentioned Urias as a potential late-season addition to the rotation or a multi-innings option out of the bullpen. He arrived Monday with a much more realistic expectation.“Just to kind of get him some more appearances,” Roberts said. “What role? Obviously out of the ’pen and we’ll start him out in lower-leverage (situations) and see how it translates this season here. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies “An inning at a time. It would probably come in a clean inning. And for me, it wouldn’t be back-to-back (days). … Probably an inning and probably an every-other-day situation.”PITCHING CHANGERight-hander Ross Stripling will make the start Wednesday in Cincinnati as expected. It will be Stripling’s first start since Aug. 9 and it will be limited, making Wednesday essentially a ‘bullpen game.’“I think three (innings) and 45 (pitches) is a fair ask,” Roberts said.Stripling went on the DL for about four weeks with lower back discomfort and has made just one relief appearance since returning. He faced two batters in Colorado on Friday.FAR EASTMajor League Baseball and the players’ union announced some of the players who will be participating in the 2018 Japan All-Star Series.
