      Dodgers' Julio Urias: Another successful rehab outing

      Julio Urias (shoulder) completed his second rehab outing Friday, topping out at 95 mph while tossing 1.2 innings for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.Urias continues to build up his arm strength following shoulder surgery last year. The Los Angeles Dodgers have already announced that the 21-year-old will pitch out of the bullpen when he is deemed ready to return to the majors, but Kenley Jansen's expected four-to-six-week absence could accelerate the youngster's rehab process, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports. The club is unlikely to jeopardize its prized arm's health to fill an immediate need, but if Urias does get the call sooner than expected, he could immediately slot into a high-leverage role for a Dodgers bullpen that is dealing with multiple injuries to key contributors.

      Dodgers' Julio Urias: Set for relief work once activated

      Manager Dave Roberts said the Los Angeles Dodgers intend to deploy Julio Urias (shoulder) as a reliever once the 21-year-old returns from the 60-day disabled list later in the second half, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.One of the more heralded pitching prospects in recent years, Urias' long-term outlook became muddled after he required a major operation on his shoulder last June. Because of the extensive depth the Dodgers already have in the rotation along with the uncertainty of how effective Urias might be once he returns, the organization will prep him for a relief role, with the lefty likely to work in lower-leverage spots initially. Urias will presumably get stretched out for starting duty again next spring, but the temporary move to the bullpen should allow for a quicker rehab. He began his minor-league assignment with the Dodgers' rookie-level Arizona League affiliate Saturday, striking out four of the six batters he faced over 1.2 scoreless innings.

      Dodgers' Julio Urias: Begins rehab assignment

      Julio Urias (shoulder) began his formal rehab assignment in the Arizona League on Monday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.Urias reportedly touched 94 mph with his fastball, a good sign after the pitch was sitting down in the 88-92 mph range earlier in the month. The lefty got just five outs, though apparently that was due to weather delays. Given the length of Urias' absence, which has lasted longer than a year, expect him to spend several more weeks rehabbing before potentially returning sometime in late August or early September.

      Dodgers' Julio Urias: Could return in 4-to-6 weeks

      Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts estimated Sunday that Julio Urias (shoulder) could be ready to return from the 60-day disabled list in 4-to-6 weeks, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.Urias has advanced to pitching in simulated games at the Dodgers' spring training facility in Arizona and could soon be ready to begin a minor-league rehab assignment. Since the 21-year-old lefty has been on the shelf for nearly 13 months while recovering from shoulder surgery, he'll need extensive time to build up his arm to the point he's capable of covering multiple innings. Roberts' timetable suggests that Urias could be an option to rejoin the Dodgers by mid-August, but any activation seems more likely to happen when rosters expand in September. While it's clear the Dodgers still view Urias as a starter in the long run, he seems most likely to contribute as a reliever in 2018 if or when he reports to the big club. The Dodgers already have a crowded rotation with six healthy options and another on the mend in Hyun-Jin Ryu (groin).

      Dodgers' Julio Urias: Building up as starter

      Julio Urias (shoulder) has thrown a pair of simulated games in Arizona while building up to be a starter, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.Urias has been out since last May after undergoing shoulder surgery. The Los Angeles Dodgers are currently expecting him to be able to return as a starter late in the season, though they are open to moving him to the bullpen if a need arises there. His path should become more clear once he begins a rehab assignment.

      Dodgers' Julio Urias: Throws to live hitters

      Julio Urias (shoulder) faced live hitters for the first time during his rehab process Wednesday, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.Urias threw his first bullpen session last week, and facing live hitters marked the next step in a lengthy recovery process from last June's shoulder surgery. Manager Dave Roberts said that the youngster's fastball was sitting in the 88-92 mph range, which is still a tick off from the 93.1 mph he averaged in the majors prior to going down with a left anterior capsule injury in May of 2017. The next notable step in Urias' recovery process will be a rehab stint in the minors, but no official date has been set for when that will take place. The Los Angeles Dodgers have been targeting a second-half return for the 21-year-old, and his progress falls in line with that expectation.

      Dodgers' Julio Urias: Fastball hits 91 in bullpen

      Julio Urias (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Monday, touching 91 mph with his fastball, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.Urias hasn't pitched at the big-league level since last May after undergoing shoulder surgery. His fastball averaged 93 mph prior to his injury, so it's a good sign that its velocity continues to climb, though he's still not back to his former self. He reportedly could be making rehab appearances in July, putting a return in August on the table.

      Dodgers' Julio Urias: Bullpens on tap this week

      Urias, Julio (shoulder) will throw two bullpen sessions this week and recently touched the upper 80s with his fastball, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.The electric southpaw averaged 93 mph with his fastball prior to his significant shoulder injury, which required surgery, so he is clearly not close to his old self. While the Los Angeles Dodgers' rotation has been ravaged by injuries, they will exercise caution with their prized young hurler. It's possible he will begin a rehab assignment in July.
