  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Returns to minors

    The Dodgers optioned Grove to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

    Los Angeles called up Grove from Triple-A on Saturday in case a long reliever was needed in the final two games of the team's series with the Giants, but the right-hander ultimately wasn't needed out of the bullpen. The Dodgers still intend to develop Grove as a starter, so he'll head back to Triple-A to make regular turns through Oklahoma City's rotation. Reyes Moronta was called up to replace Grove in the bullpen.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Back in big leagues

    Grove was recalled by the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Grove is up to replace Walker Buehler, who's set to miss an extended period due to a forearm strain. Grove has made one start and one relief appearance thus far in his rookie season, allowing seven runs (three earned) in 4.2 innings while striking out three batters and walking four. While he could replace Buehler in the rotation, the Dodgers have two off days next week and should have Andrew Heaney (shoulder) back from the injured list next weekend, so it looks as though Grove may be a reliever for now.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Heading back to minors

    The Dodgers optioned Grove to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Los Angeles brought up Caleb Ferguson to join the bullpen as a replacement for Grove, whom the organization likely wants to continue making regular starts at Triple-A. Grove was summoned from the minors Saturday when the Dodgers were in need of a multi-inning arm out of the bullpen, but he made just one appearance during his latest stint in the big leagues. He was charged with three earned runs on three hits and a walk in an inning of relief in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Pirates.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Recalled by Dodgers

    Grove was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday.

    Grove made his major-league debut as a starter in mid-May, and he struck out three in 3.2 scoreless innings against the Phillies. While the right-hander will rejoin the major-league roster Saturday, it appears as though he'll be available out of the bullpen for now. Ryan Pepiot was sent down to make room for Grove on the active roster.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Heads back to minors

    Grove was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday.

    Grove was called up for his major-league debut Sunday against the Phillies but spent just one day on the roster before heading back to the minors. He gave up four unearned runs in 3.2 innings in his lone appearance. Caleb Ferguson (elbow) returned from the injured list to claim his roster spot.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Goes 3.2 strong innings in debut

    Grove didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 5-4 win over Philadelphia, allowing four unearned runs on four hits and three walks with three strikeouts in 3.2 innings.

    Making his big-league debut, Grove pitched well aside from the second inning, when a Gavin Lux error extended the inning and led to four unearned runs crossing the plate. The 25-year-old tossed 43 of 70 pitches for strikes and induced eight swinging strikes, though nearly one walk per inning is a bit concerning. It's unclear if Grove did enough to stick with the team for another start.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Promoted for MLB debut

    Grove was called up from Double-A Tulsa ahead of his start Sunday against the Phillies, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The 25-year-old will make his big-league debut Sunday in a spot start, filling the gap in Los Angeles' rotation following the placement of Clayton Kershaw (pelvis) on the injured list. Grove struggled at the Double-A level with a 7.86 ERA last year, but he's pitched well so far in 2022 and has a 2.76 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 22:5 K:BB across 16.1 innings.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Set for MLB debut

    Grove will be called up from Double-A Tulsa to make his major-league debut Sunday against the Phillies, either as the starter or as the bulk reliever following an opener, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    The Dodgers have a spot start available with Clayton Kershaw (pelvis) on the injured list. Grove has yet to pitch above Double-A, but he's impressed in five starts at that level so far this season, posting a 2.76 ERA and a 32.8 percent strikeout rate.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Optioned to minors

    Grove was optioned to the minors on Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com.

    Grove reached Double-A in 2021 with a 7.86 ERA and 1.79 WHIP in 71 innings. Amongst the four pitchers optioned Saturday, Grove was the only one that wasn't a non-roster invitee.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Added to 40-man roster

    Grove was added to the Dodgers' 40-man roster Friday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    This is a little surprising, as Grove compiled a 7.86 ERA and 1.79 WHIP in 71 innings at Double-A last season. The Dodgers obviously think he's better than that, so perhaps he can break out in 2022.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Invited to spring training

    Grove was invited to participate in the Dodgers' spring training camp Tuesday, Rowan Kavner of Dodger Insider reports.

    Grove has yet to pitch above the High-A level and is expected to open the season at Double-A. However, he'll get a chance to showcase his arm as a non-roster invitee to the team's big-league camp. The right-hander struggled with a 6.10 ERA and 1.56 WHIP during his first pro season in 2019, though he did show big strikeout ability with 73 whiffs in 51.2 innings.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Receives summer camp invite

    Grove has been added to the Dodgers' 60-man player pool.

    Grove was drafted in 2018 but did not play until 2019 due to recovery from Tommy John surgery. The right-hander posted a 6.10 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 73:19 K:BB across 51.2 innings with High-A Rancho Cucamonga last year. There is swing-and-miss stuff in his arsenal, but he is far from ready to pitch to major-league hitters and is unlikely to see any big-league playing time this season.
