Ferguson (0-1) allowed four runs (three earned) on two hits and one walk while striking out six across five innings to take the loss Sunday against the Giants.
Ferguson allowed only three baserunners, but surrendered two home runs, the direct cause of all the runs he allowed. He was solid otherwise, generating an impressive 16 swinging strikes and starting 13 of the 19 batters he faced with a strike. After throwing only 57 and 65 pitches respectively in his first two starts of the season, Ferguson was allowed to throw 84 pitches in his start Sunday. That bodes well him pitching deeper into games if he remains in Dodgers' rotation moving forward.
Ferguson will start Sunday's game against the Giants, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Manager Dave Roberts confirmed Ferguson will get another turn in the Dodgers starting rotation after allowed two runs on five hits over four innings Tuesday. The 21-year-old was limited to 65 pitches and he could face similar restrictions Sunday, but he remains one of four Dodgers' starting pitchers who is currently not on the disabled list.
Ferguson did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three over four innings against the Rangers.
Making just his second big-league start, Ferguson was limited to just 65 pitches and four innings but he was decently effective in that time. The 21-year-old threw 40 of his pitches for strikes -- including six swings and misses -- and all five hits allowed were singles. The Dodgers' starting rotation is decimated by injuries at the moment, so the young left-hander may get a chance to stick around for a few turns. He's posted a 1.53 ERA in 10 starts between Double-A and Triple-A, notching 52 strikeouts over 47 innings.
Ferguson was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City and confirmed as the start for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.
As expected, Ferguson was summoned from the minors ahead of his second big-league start. The young lefty struggled mightily in his first start with the Dodgers earlier in the month, allowing four runs on two hits and three walks across 1.2 innings of work.
Ferguson is scheduled to take the mound Tuesday against the Rangers, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Ferguson will be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to his second major-league start of the year. He lasted just 1.2 innings, allowing four runs on two hits and three walks while striking out three in his lone big-league outing against the Pirates on June 6.
