On Wednesday evening The Dodgers announced that pitching prospect Brock Stewart would be activated from the disabled list and sent to Triple-A.
Brock Stewart made two rehab appearances in Triple-A and one in Single-A. Although they were rocky starts, that is to be expected.
Brock Stewart has been sidelined for quite some time and his last outing goes back to September 27, 2016, where he threw an inning in relief for the Dodgers against the Padres. Although there is a lot of baseball left, it doesn’t seem likely that we will see Stewart due to the starting pitching depth that the Dodgers have. However, with the struggling starters on the 40-man roster, if Brock Stewart can get back to form, we may see him at some point.
Dodgers have reinstated Brock Stewart from 60-day DL (right shoulder tendinitis) and optioned him to @okc_dodgers.

One thing is for certain, the Dodgers rotation is getting very exciting very fast. With Kershaw in his prime, Wood on the brink of pure excellence, Brock Stewart, Julio Urias, Yadier Alvarez, and Walker Buehler are the young guns, and they’re running out of things to prove, the future Dodgers rotation seems to be very, very promising.
