Is a Julio Urias Call Up in the Works?

To say the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen has been struggling is an understatement. Despite having Clayton Kershaw and promising talent like Kenta Maeda and Ross Stripling the Dodgers need help and fast.

Following their latest loss the Dodgers fell from the top spot in the NL West.

Looking to strengthen the bullpen, is left-hander Julio Urias worth a call up?

The 19-year-old pitcher is currently playing for Triple-A Oklahoma City and on Wednesday had six no-hit innings. In his 24 innings thus far he’s racked up 29K, three walks and an ERA of 1.88.

Following the Dodgers 5-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, manager Dave Roberts discussed the possibility of calling up Urias to the Majors:

Urias is only 19-years-old, but it wouldn’t be the first time a young talent came in for the Dodgers.

From Eric Stephen,

Urias doesn’t turn 20 until Aug. 12. The last Dodgers pitcher to appear in a game as a teenager was Fernando Valenzuela, with 10 games in relief at age 19 in September and October 1980. The last teenage starter was Dick Calmus, on Aug. 23, 1963.

Should the Dodgers make the call? Let us know in the comments below.
