Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Role remains unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson will likely be a part of the Dodgers' pitching staff in 2020, but his role remains unsettled, Cary Osborne of Dodger Insider reports.

Ferguson is viewed by manager Dave Roberts as a reliever, but his versatility lends to a lack of clarity about his eventual big-league role. The 23-year-old was primarily a starter in the minors from 2016-17 and has aspirations to become a starter at the big-league level in the long term. However, he has come out of the bullpen in all but five of his 75 career appearances in the majors, and the Dodgers already have their starting rotation in place for the upcoming season. Of course, there are a lot of unknowns about what the 2020 campaign may look like -- including the possibility of expanded rosters and fewer off days -- so Ferguson's ability to pitch in short or long stints could prove to be extremely valuable.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Adds third pitch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson has been developing a third pitch to add to his arsenal, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

"It's a slider, but I call it a cutter," Ferguson explained when describing the pitch. "I just call it a cutter so I can keep the same intent to remember to throw it as hard as I can." The 23-year-old has pitched well thus far this spring, hurling 4.1 scoreless innings without allowing a baserunner and picking up three strikeouts. He is in contention for a bullpen spot on the Dodgers' Opening Day roster, but his long-term goal is to develop into a starter, per Harris. The addition of a slider could go a long way toward helping him achieve that goal.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson will start Tuesday's game against the Rays, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Ross Stripling was announced as Tuesday's starter late last week, but the Dodgers have since changed their plans. Considering Ferguson hasn't tossed more than 2.2 innings in an appearance this season, he figures to only pitch one or two frames before handing things off to the bullpen.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

Ferguson was sent down to the minors Thursday, but after Alex Verdugo (oblique) landed on the injured list, he was eligible to return to the big-league club. He's had a rough go of it with the Dodgers this season, accruing a 5.88 ERA and 1.81 WHIP with 32 strikeouts over 26 innings.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.

Ferguson will swap places on the roster with Adam Kolarek, who was acquired from the Rays via trade Wednesday. In 27 appearances with the Dodgers this season, the left-handed Ferguson owns a 5.88 ERA, 1.81 WHIP and 32:17 K:BB in 26 innings.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Callup official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers officially recalled Ferguson from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.

Ferguson arrived in Philadelphia as a member of the taxi squad ahead of Thursday's series finale with the Phi;lies, but the Dodgers didn't decide until shortly before first pitch to formally activate him. He'll assume the active roster spot of Casey Sadler, who was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move. Ferguson may only stick around with the Dodgers until the team's other relievers are sufficiently rested.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Joins taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson joined the Dodgers in Philadelphia ahead of Thursday's game against the Phillies but hasn't been formally recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

After five relievers were needed to cover the final seven innings of Wednesday's 7-2 win, the Dodgers could activate Ferguson ahead of the series finale if manager Dave Roberts feel the team could benefit from a fresh arm out of the bullpen. Over 22 appearances (one start) with Los Angeles this season, Ferguson has posted a 5.48 ERA and 28:13 K:BB in 23 innings.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.

Ferguson spent the past two weeks with the Dodgers, compiling a 4.26 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 12:2 K:BB across 6.1 innings (five appearances) during that stretch. Edwin Rios was summoned to the majors to take Ferguson's place on the roster.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Called back up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson has been called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Dodgers placed Scott Alexander on the 10-day injured list with forearm inflammation Tuesday, so Ferguson has been called back up to the big club in a corresponding move. He's thrown 16.2 big-league innings this season, giving up 11 earned runs and posting a 16:11 K:BB.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson has been optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ferguson will head back to Oklahoma City in a corresponding move as the Dodgers activated Joe Kelly from the MLB bereavement list Monday. The 22-year-old left-hander has given up 11 earned runs with 16 strikeouts over 16.2 innings at the big-league level this season.

May 16, 2019 06:16 PM
Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Activated as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday.

As expected, Ferguson is back with the Dodgers ahead of Friday's series opener against the Reds. Prior to landing on the shelf, the southpaw compiled a 3.46 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 14:8 K:BB in 13 innings. J.T. Chargois was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Set to return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson (oblique) is expected to be activated off the 10-day injured list Friday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ferguson made two minor-league rehab appearances over the last week, clearing the way for his return to the majors. The 22-year-old had a 3.46 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 14:8 K:BB over 13 innings prior to sustaining the left oblique injury at the end of April.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Rehab assignment continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson (oblique) will make a second minor-league rehab appearance Monday at Triple-A Oklahoma City, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Ferguson started his rehab assignment Friday at High-A Rancho Cucamonga and delivered a scoreless inning with one walk and two strikeouts. The 22-year-old has been on the injured list since April 28 and could subsequently rejoin the Dodgers if all goes well with Oklahoma City.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Set for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson (oblique) will embark on a minor-league rehab assignment later this week, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ferguson threw around 15-to-20 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday and experienced no issues with his left oblique. The left-hander has only been on the injured list since April 28, so he may only need a game or two in the minors to get back up to speed.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Tosses sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson (oblique) pitched a simulated game Tuesday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ferguson took a big step forward by facing live hitters for the first time since suffering a left oblique injury. It remains unclear if he'll require a brief rehab stint prior to his activation.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Tosses bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson (oblique) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Ferguson landed on the injured list over the weekend with a sore oblique, but the fact that he's already resumed mound work suggests his stay on the shelf won't be an extended one. The southpaw will be eligible to return May 8, should he prove ready.

April 30, 2019 05:40 PM
Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson played catch Tuesday to test his sore oblique, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Ferguson hit the injured list Sunday, but his absence isn't expected to be particularly lengthy. The fact that he's already throwing hints in that direction, though a clearer timeline won't emerge until Ferguson is sent out on a rehab assignment.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Not facing lengthy absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said the oblique injury that Ferguson picked up during a relief appearance Saturday against the Pirates won't require a lengthy stay on the 10-day injured list, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Roberts called Ferguson's diagnosis "the best-case scenario" considering the Dodgers had feared that he suffered a more significant setback. Ferguson could resume throwing within the next few days, which would set him up to return from the injured list in the minimum amount of time or close to it.

April 28, 2019 03:20 PM
Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Heads to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson was placed on the 10-day injured list with an unspecified injury Sunday.

Per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, Ferguson picked up a side injury in Saturday's game against the Pirates. The nature and severity of the issue aren't yet clear, but he'll wind up missing at least 10 days. Rich Hill (knee) was activated off the injured list in a corresponding move.

Dodgers' Caleb Ferguson: Saddled with loss in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferguson (0-1) took the loss Saturday as the Dodgers fell 4-1 to the Brewers, allowing one run on four hits and two walks over 2.2 innings while striking out two.

As expected, the southpaw didn't give the Dodgers much length, throwing 51 pitches (36 strikes), and while Ferguson's line wasn't terrible, a lack of offensive support stuck him with the loss. The 22-year-old should return to a long-relief role once Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) rejoins the rotation.
