JT Chargois has been one of the Dodgers’ best pitchers down in Oklahoma City and has gotten the call to demonstrate his abilities once again at the big-league level.
The Dodgers today recalled RHP JT Chargois from Triple-A Oklahoma City and placed LHP Julio Urías on administrative leave.

Chargois has posted a 1.76 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across 15 2/3 innings, amassing 19 strikeouts. He is expected to begin his tenure in a low-leverage role, but could very easily find himself involved in high-leverage situations in later innings of games.
The reason for Chargois getting the call is not great, as it is a result of Julio Urías being placed on administrative leave while Major League Baseball investigates him for a domestic violence incident at the Beverly Center in West Los Angeles.
Chargois had a solid year for the Dodgers in 2018, with a 3.34 ERA and 1.27 WHIP and 40 strikeouts across 32 1/3 innings of work.
