The Los Angeles Dodgers are moving Julio Urias to the bullpen to make room for the return of Hyun-Jin Ryu from the injured list.
Urias struck out nine batters in six innings on Thursday night against the Milwaukee Brewers.
“I’m happy. Very happy,” he said. “That’s what the team decided. I’m not here to make my own roles. They have their reasons why they are going to do that. I’m going to be ready and will stay strong.”
He’s behind Clayton Kershaw, Ryu, Walker Buehler, Kenta Maeda, Rich Hill on the depth chart.
