A spokesperson for the Dodgers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Urias was once one of the Dodgers’ top prospects and made his Major League debut in 2016. The left-hander has appeared in nine games, including four starts, for the Dodgers this year, registering a 2-2 record with two saves and a 3.18 ERA.

He has been pitching out of the bullpen for Los Angeles in recent weeks and last appeared in a game on Friday.
