After yet another rocky start for the Dodgers, Ross Stripling has been placed on the DL with a toe injury.

According to Dave Roberts, Stripling has been battling the injury for weeks. This would make sense, as Stripling hasn’t been himself over his last few appearances. In his first all-star game, Ross Stripling suffered a loss after allowing three runs in 1.2 innings of relief. His next two starts haven’t gotten any better, as he’s allowed nine runs and 14 hits in 8.2 innings. Although his ERA is still low, sitting at 2.68, he’s seen it soar 60 points in just two starts.

Dave Roberts says he expects Stripling to miss 10-12 days as he recovers from the injury.

With Stripling headed to the DL, the Dodgers have brought up Dylan Floro.

Floro, whom the Dodgers acquired from the Reds on July 4, has appeared in six games with the Dodgers this season. In 7.1 innings, he had a 3.68 ERA, but a very impressive 0.82 WHIP. He has eight strikeouts, and hitters are batting .160 against him.

Analysis

Hopefully, this will be a quick DL stint for Stripling. With 104 innings under his belt this season, he’s already set a career-high. His workload has been a ton, and a few weeks off should get him back on track.
