Deadline deals or not, Dodgers’ bullpen is going through changes

first_imgUrías has made 18 relief appearances (3-1, 1.80 ERA) and five starts (1-1, 3.18 ERA) for the Dodgers this season. In four career appearances at Coors Field (two starts), Urías has allowed 12 runs in 13⅔ innings – a 7.90 ERA. Gonsolin has never pitched in the most hitter-friendly ballpark in the major leagues.In his only major league start back in June, Gonsolin was roughed up by the Arizona Diamondbacks for six runs in four innings. The right-hander was 1-4 with a 4.95 ERA in 12 starts at Oklahoma City. He missed time earlier in the season with an oblique injury.Floro, meanwhile, threw a bullpen on Monday. Roberts said the right-hander will be activated from the injured list Wednesday. Floro, who hasn’t pitched since July 18 because of neck inflammation, tossed a scoreless inning in his only minor league rehabilitation appearance with advanced Class-A Rancho Cucamonga.What’s with the flurry of pitching moves?“It’s more guarding against what you say is unlikely but here (in Colorado) seems to be likely: long innings and a lot of pitches thrown and arms used,” Roberts said. “Just to have coverage, we go about it that way.” Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start As for the trade deadline, the Dodgers have been connected to assorted relief pitchers for weeks, and have scouted others not mentioned in the rumor mill. It is assumed they will make one or more moves to upgrade their bullpen, which ranks 11th out of 15 National League teams in blown saves. The deadline to make a trade Wednesday at 1 p.m. PTD.Roberts said he can’t be so confident a new arm will arrive at the deadline that it will affect his bullpen management in the meantime.“That’s certainly for me not a certainty,” Roberts said. “With the guys that we have, and just managing this series with the guys that we have – taxi guys, things like that – but as far as expecting reinforcements by way of trade, that’s not my thought.”NEGRON ADDEDThe Dodgers made one other roster move. Utility player Kristopher Negron was added, one day after he was acquired from the Seattle Mariners for minor league infielder Daniel Castro.To make room for Negron, Kiké Hernandez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hand sprain. Hernandez missed four games after he suffered the injury on a swing last Wednesday against the Angels.Related Articles DENVER — The Dodgers listed nine active pitchers in their bullpen for Monday night’s game against the Rockies.One was not with the team on Sunday in Washington, D.C. Two might be off the 25-man roster in the coming days, depending on the corresponding roster moves to accommodate pitchers Tony Gonsolin and Dylan Floro. And then there’s the trade deadline, a looming threat to reconfigure the makeup of the Dodgers’ relief corps in the midst of their Wednesday afternoon game.Monday, Josh Sborz was the only new arm on the Dodgers’ 25-man roster. The Dodgers recalled the right-hander from Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he had a 3.24 ERA and 14 strikeouts over 8⅓ innings since his only major league appearance on June 20. Right-hander Jaime Schultz was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.Gonsolin and Floro are with the Dodgers in Denver, too. Manager Dave Roberts said Gonsolin will be part of the pitching mix Tuesday, but Julio Urías will draw the starting assignment.

He was batting .217. He cannot be optioned to the minor leagues.“He can play essentially anywhere on the field,” Roberts said of Negron. “Great teammate from what I hear: baseball player, high IQ, and he’s been on the team. (Tuesday) I’ve got him starting at second base. We’ll just see how it goes. Corey (Seager)’s going to need a day here. (Max) Muncy’s going to need a day off. Just move him around the diamond.”ALSOThe Dodgers signed pitcher Tyler Thornburg to a minor league contract. The 30-year-old right-hander was released by the Red Sox on July 10. He had a 7.71 ERA in 16 relief appearances this season, and has made 185 appearances for the Brewers and Red Sox in a career that began in 2012. … The Dodgers traded left-handed pitcher Zac Rosscup to the St. Louis Cardinals for cash.
