The Dodgers have placed Julio Urias on disabled list with shoulder discomfort. While the organization isn’t worried about the lefty’s health, they’re taking extra precautions to ensure his shoulder in the long run. The 20-year old was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City in late May after racking up a 5.40 in the first few months of the season. While there’s no structural damage, no timetable yet on Urias’ return.
