Dodgers starter Ross Stripling is reportedly not making his scheduled start on Tuesday due to biceps tendinitis which he sustained in his last start and has been placed on the IL.
Ross Stripling said he isn’t throwing a bullpen today and won’t tomorrow, which means he isn’t making his start Tuesday. The IL is likely. In related news, Jaime Schultz is here.

Whether or not Strip was bound to make his next start has been up in the air all week, but it appears that we finally have an answer. There has been no official word yet that Stripling would be placed on the IL, but it appears likely at this juncture. The Dodgers have reportedly recalled RHP Jaime Schultz from Triple-A Oklahoma City as the corresponding roster move.
The Dodgers have recalled RHP Jaime Schultz from Triple-A Oklahoma City and placed RHP Ross Stripling on the 10-day injured list with right biceps tendinitis, retroactive to July 25.

Stripling, 29, is having a solid year and is currently the Dodgers’ number five starter. He is posting just over a strikeout per inning, a 3.64 ERA, and allowing just an 81st-percentile xwOBA on the year.
Schultz, 28, was acquired earlier this year from the Tampa Bay Rays and has thrown three scoreless innings at the big-league level for the Dodgers in 2019.
