Dodger News: David Freese and Ross Stripling To Be Activated September 1st

Ross Stripling and David Freese are expected to be activated on September 1st. This information came before the last game in San Diego on the 27th. Ross Stripling is also to be activated from his injury.

These activations will be coming at a perfect time. September is the time that MLB teams can expand their rosters. With Hyun-Jin Ryu having a 3rd consecutive poor start, one can postulate that a few skipped starts (or an IL stint) is in his future. Getting back (friend of the show) Ross Stripling will be perfect to give the team some arms to cover a few missed starts by our Korean Monster.

Before hitting the IL, David Freese was slashing a .300/.399/.579 in 66 games for the Dodgers. Against right handed pitching, he was putting up a robust .719 slugging percentage. David Freese not only brings a potentially hot bat back to the active roster, but also flexibility. David Freese and his clutch gene cannot be overstated. He also adds a calming leadership presence to the Dodgers that being on the field can only magnify.

More On The Horizon

September means we’re almost guaranteed to see a few more names added to the MLB roster for the Dodgers. There’s one prospect everyone is clamoring to see, but only a few days from now will we really know who will be called up to join the boys in blue.
