Dodgers News: Dave Roberts Talks Julio Urias Future With LA

The Dodgers are getting set for the 2023 postseason and will be without starting pitcher Julio Urias.

Urias is on paid administrative leave as the MLB continues their investigation into the domestic violence accusation against him on Sept. 4. Urias was arrested and posted bail, and had a court date scheduled for Sept. 27 but did not show up.

On Tuesday, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts spoke to Jon Heyman and Joel Sherman of the New York Post regarding Urias, and unsurprisingly confirmed he would not be returning this postseason.

“He’s on the restricted list,” Roberts said. “So we haven’t seen him, we haven’t heard from him. And so obviously, he’s not going to be pitching for us this year.”

Roberts was also asked about Urias’ future in LA potentially past this season.

“And as far as what the future holds,” Roberts said, “I have no idea.”

Urias is scheduled to hit free agency after this season, but teams will undoubtedly want to see this legal matter get resolved before making any decisions regarding signing him.

Urias was set to sign a massive contract this offseason entering unrestricted free agency at just 27 years old. It now remains to be seen what this offseason holds for him.
