Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Tagged with loss Friday
Graterol (0-2) took the loss against Philadelphia on Friday, allowing three runs (two earned) on one hit and one walk while striking out one over one inning.
The teams went back and forth throughout the game, with Justin Turner's homer in the ninth inning sending the game into extra innings. Graterol was tasked with handling the top of the 10th, but he gave up a double to Nick Castellanos that resulted in two runs, with Castellanos coming around to score on an error by catcher Austin Barnes. The Dodgers mounted a rally in the bottom of the frame but were unable to complete the comeback, resulting in Graterol's second loss of the season. The right-hander has had a tough time of late, giving up four earned runs while posting a 3:2 K:BB across his past five appearances spanning 5.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Takes loss Tuesday
Graterol (0-1) suffered the loss against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday as a result of allowing two runs on one hit and one walk in one inning. He struck out one batter.
Graterol entered in the eighth inning with the score tied and walked the first batter he faced. David Peralta followed with a two-run homer to provide the game-winning runs. Graterol entered the contest having tossed 5.2 scoreless innings across his first six appearances, so this hiccup is unlikely to affect his status as a key cog in the Dodgers' bullpen....

Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Adds pitch to arsenal
Graterol has added a new pitch to his repertoire for this season, though he hasn't yet disclosed the pitch type, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Graterol's primary weapon is a sinker he often throws at triple-digit velocity, with a high-80s slider featuring as his secondary offering. The right-hander added a cutter to his pitch mix last season, and it appears that he'll now have a fourth option at his disposal. It's unlikely that Graterol will feature the new pitch prominently -- he relied on the sinker or slider over 90 percent of the time last season -- but the push to broaden his arsenal is at least a positive sign that the 23-year-old is intent on furthering his development after a somewhat disappointing 2021 campaign....

Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Struggles against Padres
Graterol didn't record an out against San Diego on Wednesday, allowing three runs on two hits and two walks.
The flamethrowing reliever couldn't find his control in the outing, tossing only eight of 19 pitches for strikes and issuing two free passes. The three runs the Padres scored against Graterol extended their lead to 9-5, but a big eighth inning by the Dodgers turned the game around and allowed them to pull out an important win. Graterol entered the contest having compiled eight straight scoreless appearances, and he appears likely to be part of the team's playoff roster.... See More ... See Less

Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Struggles in relief outing
Graterol earned a hold Friday against Colorado despite allowing two runs on two hits over two-thirds of an inning.
After being brought up from Triple-A Oklahoma City earlier in the day, Graterol was asked to protect a two-run eighth-inning lead. He allowed a single and a double for one run, then watched from the dugout as Darien Nunez took over on the mound and allowed the game-tying single. The appearance was Graterol's first for the Dodgers since July 3, and he has struggled to build upon his promising 2020 campaign, registering a 9.64 ERA across six big-league appearances and a 6.62 ERA across 18 minor-league outings this season....

Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Optioned to Triple-A
The Dodgers optioned Graterol to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.
Graterol earned a win Saturday night, striking out two in a perfect inning of relief.

Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Set to join Dodgers
Graterol is expected to be recalled Friday to take the roster spot of Trevor Bauer (not injury related), Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
With Bauer being placed on administrative leave following the assault allegations against him, Graterol will rejoin the Dodgers' bullpen starting Friday in Washington. The right-hander is already with the team for the club's visit to the White House, so he should be in uniform for the series opener. Graterol began the season on the COVID-19 injured list before returning in mid-April, but landed back on the IL just 11 days later with forearm tightness. He was sent to Oklahoma City when he was reinstated June 4. Graterol has allowed seven earned runs and struck out 11 across 10.1 Triple-A innings, and he figures to pitch in lower-leverage situations during his return to the majors.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Allows one hit in return

The reliever threw 15 of 21 pitches for strikes in his first big-league appearance since April 26. He could remain a fixture in the Dodgers' bullpen if he's able to show that he's over the issues that caused his early season wobbles.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Still working on skills in minors
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday that Graterol "is not a finished product" as he continues to pitch for Triple-A Oklahoma City, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports.
Graterol hasn't pitched in the majors since April 26, just before he went on the injured list with right forearm tightness. The right-hander was reinstated from the IL on June 4 but has since been kept with the club's Triple-A squad, where he has reportedly been working on his sinker and slider. In 10 appearances with Oklahoma City, Graterol has allowed seven earned runs and compiled a 10:3 K:BB across 9.1 innings. It is unclear when he might be brought back up to the big club....

Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Will work on sinker, slider
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts explained Saturday that Graterol was sent to Triple-A Oklahoma City to work on his sinker and slider, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Graterol was activated from the injured list Friday but was kept in the minors despite already making a pair of rehab appearances with the Triple-A club. Roberts clarified that the reliever struggled with command of his sinker and with the shape on his slider earlier this season, so he will focus on those pitches while working his way back to the majors. Graterol is still expected to play a key role in the Dodgers' bullpen before long.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Reinstated, sent down

Graterol had been on the injured list since April 29 due to right forearm tightness, and he recently began a rehab assignment with the Triple-A club. He was expected to have a high-leverage role in the Dodgers' injury-riddled bullpen once he was reinstated, but he'll remain in the minors in the near future. If he performs well with Triple-A Oklahoma City, it wouldn't be surprising to see Graterol return to the major-league bullpen at some point.... See More ... See Less
