Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was not willing to commit to pitcher Julio Urias getting a start at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers will begin their home stand vs. the Atlanta Braves Friday with Kenta Maeda on the mound.
Urias struggled against the Chicago Cubs in his second start, but had some positive moments. Urias was recalled from the minors after Alex Wood (elbow) was sent to the DL. We asked fans on Twitter if Urias should get the start at home.
Should Julio Urias get the chance to start at home vs. the #Rockies? Tweet us your thoughts.

@DodgersNation He absolutely should stay up, he pitched well the first few innings then slipped up a bit, but against the best team in MLB

@DodgersNation let him pitch, only way he can learn. He will gain more confidence over time.

@DodgersNation They should of have him start tomorrow against the Braves, rather than one of the best teams in the league.

@DodgersNation It's how Atlanta broke their studs in during the early 90s. Glavine and Smoltz got knocked around, and then had HOF careers.

@DodgersNation We need SP and he can get experience if we pitch him now compared to Sept. I doubt F/O will make any trades anytime soon.

Everyone forgets that in 09, Kershaw was throwing waaaay too many pitches and getting behind all hitters.
