Ross Stripling

Another appealing option for the Dodgers could be Ross Stripling. Stripling has been with the Dodgers for the past few seasons in a bit of a swingman role. In 136 games over the past four seasons, Stripling has started in 52 of them.

Compared to some of the younger arms for the Dodgers, Stripling does have more starts under his belt in the majors, but he will also have to stretch out his arm. According to Stripling, that is exactly what he is planning on doing.

Before baseball being halted, Stripling thought he was going to have a chance to be in the starting rotation to begin the season. However, Dave Roberts elected to go with Alex Wood and Julio Urias.

Now, Stripling will be able to get another shot at making the rotation. In four seasons with the Dodgers, Stripling has been able to put together some good numbers with a 3.51 ERA. Stripling also was named to the All-Star team in 2018, a season in which he started 21 games.

A lot will likely come down to what where they need Stripling more. As shown over the past few seasons, his ability to do multiple things out of the bullpen is extremely valuable. With some young starters waiting in the wings, Stripling might serve the team best out of the bullpen once again.
