The Los Angeles Dodgers are coming off a 7-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs and are now headed back to L.A. to begin a series vs. the Atlanta Braves. Kenta Maeda is scheduled to get the start on Friday, while Clayton Kershaw is set to be on the mound on Saturday.
As for Thursday’s series finale, the Dodgers called up Julio Urias to the majors and he made his second start for the Dodgers on the road vs. the Cubs. Urias struggled once again, but did have some positive moments. Urias was done after five innings on 79 pitches.

As for the next time Urias will start that is still up in the air. Urias has the opportunity to start next week at home vs. the Colorado Rockies, but manager Dave Roberts wouldn’t commit to that.
