Could Dodgers Prospect Josiah Gray Be On His Way To Los Angeles?

Dodgers Rumors: Is Josiah Gray Getting Called Up to Pitch Friday Night?

The Dodgers' Top Pitching Prospect Could be On His Way to Los Angeles

Speculation may stir even harder Wednesday that top Dodgers prospect Josiah Gray could be getting a call up to the big league club soon, especially with the long list of injuries piling up for the club.

The 23-year-old Gray was originally slated to be the starter for the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers Thursday night in the team’s opener against the Round Rock Express, the Triple-A affiliate of the Rangers. However, MiLB.com now shows both starters as TBD.

No reason has been given for this, and it’s needless to say that barring an injury, it could potentially be a precursor to Gray making his big-league debut for the Dodgers perhaps as early as this weekend against the Angels in Anaheim.

The OKC Dodgers just released their roster for the upcoming season at noon Wednesday, and it was headlined by Gray and INF Omar Estevez.

The Dodgers have not listed any of their starters after tonight’s game against the Cubs, where Walker Buehler will take the mound. If the team were to continue with the rotation as it has been, it calls for Julio Urias to start Saturday, Clayton Kershaw on Sunday, Trevor Bauer Tuesday against the Mariners before Buehler taking the bump once more Wednesday. It leaves Friday night’s game with a question mark.

Do you think Gray will be making his first big-league start at Angel Stadium Friday night? Tell us in the comments.

Gray was ranked the No. 68th best prospect in baseball by Baseball America prior to the season. Collectively between Great Lakes, Rancho Cucamonga and Tulsa, he went 11-2 last season with a 2.28 ERA, 0.992 WHIP, 10.2 K/9 and 4.74 K:BB ratio.
