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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Manager Dave Roberts named Ferguson as the Dodgers' starter for Saturday's game against the Brewers, the Associated Press reports.
After the Dodgers took an 8-5 loss in Friday's series opener Roberts tabbed Ferguson as the replacement for the injured Hyun-Jin Ryu (groin). Since Ferguson hasn't been asked to record more than four outs in any of his seven appearances this season and pitched just three days earlier, he's not expected to work long Saturday in what amounts to a bullpen game. Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) is poised to return from the injured list to start Monday against the Reds, so he'll effectively fill Ryu's next turn while Ferguson heads back to the bullpen.
Ferguson will build up to a three-inning workload this spring, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Ferguson was a starter almost exclusively in the minors but started in just three of his 29 big-league appearances last season. There was some thought that he'd stretch out as a starter this spring, but the team will apparently prepare him for a flexible, multi-inning role.
Manager Dave Roberts said Ferguson will work out as a starter during the early portion of spring training, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
The 22-year-old acted almost exclusively as a starter in the minors, but he was an integral part of the Dodgers' bullpen down the stretch last season. In 49 innings split between three starts and 26 relief appearances, Ferguson posted a 3.49 ERA and a 59:12 K:BB. The Dodgers will decide whether he'll be used as a starter or as a reliever sometime in early March, though it seems like a bit of a stretch that he'll find a spot in the team's well-established rotation.
Ferguson is not on the Dodgers' World Series roster.
Ferguson spent both the NLDS and NLCS on the roster, appearing in six games and facing a combined 10 batters, retiring nine and walking one. He'll be replaced by Scott Alexander for the World Series.
Ferguson was charged with three runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning in Wednesday's 12-inning win over the Giants.
Ferguson entered the contest in the eighth inning with a three-run lead, but he was unable to preserve it after serving up a three-run homer to Andrew McCutchen. The rookie southpaw has been transitioning to a late-inning role, and has generally been successful as a reliever (2.16 ERA with 30 strikeouts over 25 relief innings) even with Wednesday's hiccup. Ferguson joined a long list of Dodger relievers who recently coughed up a late-inning lead in Kenley Jansen's (chest) absence, so this rough outing shouldn't exclude him from a large closing committee.
Manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Ferguson is being prepared to be able to pitch in back-to-back games in the next week or so, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Ferguson has taken on more high-leverage work in recent weeks, earning his first two career holds in his last four appearances. The 22-year-old took the ball from starter Walker Buehler in the eighth inning Saturday and tossed a perfect frame before JT Chargois ultimately blew the save. Ferguson's fastball has been up in the mid-90s since he shortened up from long relief and it's possible he eventually becomes a part of the closer committee in the absence of Kenley Jansen (irregular heartbeat), although the bullpen just became more crowded with the additions of Kenta Maeda and Ross Stripling.
Ferguson tossed three scoreless innings in long relief and was credited with his first MLB save in the Dodgers' 17-1 win over the Pirates on Monday. He gave up three hits and no walks and struck out a batter in the 52-pitch appearance.
Given the Dodgers' 16-run advantage, Ferguson faced one of the least pressure-packed save chances you'll ever see, but it was a nice achievement for the rookie, who was celebrating his 22nd birthday. Perhaps more importantly, Ferguson's extended outing allowed the Dodgers to rest closer Kenley Jansen and top setup men Scott Alexander and Daniel Hudson, who were all used a day earlier against the Rockies. Ferguson's fantasy appeal has taken a hit since he surrendered his rotation spot after a June 17 start, but it looks like he'll stick around with the big club while he continues to thrive as a long man out of the bullpen. He has allowed just one run over nine innings in his three relief appearances.
