With the Los Angeles Dodgers still figuring out ways to stabilize their rotation after losing Clayton Kershaw to injury and Trevor Bauer to administrative leave, the team has turned to top pitching prospect, Josiah Gray.
Yesterday, LA made it official by selecting Gray’s contract and placing lefty Scott Alexander on the 60-day injured list and designating utility man Andy Burns for assignment. Dodgers prospect guru, Tim Rogers joins the show to discuss Josiah Gray’s much anticipated MLB debut. Plus, is Josiah Gray a future frontline starter and could he be the next Walker Buehler?
Elephant in the room, it didn’t go the way anyone hoped. Jojo made his debut on Tuesday and tossed 4 innings, striking out 7 while allowing 4 runs on 3 home runs. He showed flashes of what makes him the number 2 prospect in the Dodger system and 42nd overall in baseball.
Overall he did what was expected of him, pick up some key innings for a beleaguered pitching staff, and show the front office what you can do at the big league level.
With the trade deadline less than 10 days away, the Dodgers will keep a close eye on Josiah.
