Dodgers Rumors: Is Top Prospect Josiah Gray About to Miss Time?

The top Dodgers pitching prospect has been discussed for a big-league call up

Top Dodgers prospect and pitcher, Josiah Gray, was scratched just minutes before his start Tuesday night for Triple-A Oklahoma City. The reason, as Eric Stephen of True Blue LA says on Twitter, isn’t clear.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is obviously concerned about the status of the up-and-coming 23-year-old Gray, whose spot as the minor-league team’s Opening Day starter had been up in the air last week up until the moment he took the mound. He then struck out 10 batters in five innings pitched, allowing two runs and three hits (one being a home run), while walking two.

Roberts has talked in recent press conferences about the possibility of Gray getting called up to the Majors. The mention of testing alludes that there is probably an injury concerning Gray, and the team is likely to be cautious with calling him up until he’s completely healthy and ready to fully contribute to the Dodgers.
