Last week, Julio Urias made one of the most anticipated debuts in recent major league history versus the New York Mets. He pitched 2 2/3 innings and ended up giving up five hits, walking 4 batters, striking out 3 hitters in 81 pitches.
Urias was quickly sent back to the minors the following day, which is understandable and honestly, expected from the Dodgers organization as they try their best to realize the full potential of baseball’s brightest prospect. Wood just started for the Dodgers yesterday versus the Cubs and has been amazing at home while figuring out his rhythm on the road.
The Dodgers are returning home this weekend with Clayton Kershaw scheduled for Friday and Alex Wood being scheduled for Saturday, so that might be a possible date that fans in Los Angeles can see the young prospect at Dodger Stadium. Check back for the latest on his pitching status.
