LA Dodgers Place Pitcher Caleb Ferguson on the IL, Josh Sborz Recalled

[Editor’s note: This story has been updated]

After coming out of Tuesday night’s game in noticeable discomfort, left-handed pitcher Caleb Ferguson was officially placed on the injured list with a left elbow issue. In his place, righty Josh Sborz returns to the active roster after being optioned just days ago.

Notably, as already expected, the Dodgers made Joe Kelly’s return from a 5-game suspension official.

Ferguson underwent testing in San Diego last night after leaving last night’s game in the 8th inning with an apparent elbow issue. Moreover, results came back inconclusive. He traveled to Los Angeles today to undergo a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam where details were unavailable at the time of publishing.

Sborz is back with the Dodgers for the fourth time this season. In 3 appearances, he’s allowed 1 earned run in 3 innings pitched.


Roberts confirmed with SportsNet LA’s Alanna Rizzo mid-game on Wednesday that there is, in fact, some potential damage in the 23-year-old’s left elbow.

Ferguson had Tommy John surgery back in high school, around 2014. In all likelihood, his 2020 season is done.
