Julio Urias is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Tuesday. Urias was sent home over the weekend while dealing with strep throat, but he's feeling better now. [...]
Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias said he still believes he's competing for a starting rotation spot on the Opening Day roster, despite indications he will instead be assigned to extended spring training after camp ends.
Spin: "If I throw a bullpen tomorrow, they'll probably tell me what the plan is," Urias said. "I'm fighting for a spot in the rotation, and it seems this is the way they are managing me, and I have to respect that. You don't know what's going to happen. You hope everyone stays healthy, first and foremost, but you don't know what's going to happen." The 20-year-old Urias' innings have been limited by management, and now he's coming off a bout with strep throat that was a further setback in his preparation. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the door "hasn't closed" on Urias being in the rotation to start the season, even though he mentioned the other five as being "lined up" with their next scheduled starts. "It would be unrealistic to say he'll start the season built up completely," Roberts said. "The door's not closed. To say he's up to 100 pitches is not realistic. There's a certain amount of innings that we're trying to find a way to have those innings when it matters most. All the games matter, I get that, but we're still navigating our way with Julio."

Left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu won back his spot in the season-opening starting rotation on Monday, said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who added that the fifth spot will go to either Brandon McCarthy or Alex Wood.
Spin: Roberts also said that the loser of the fifth-starter competition between McCarthy and Wood would remain with the club as a long reliever. With Clayton Kershaw, Kenta Maeda, Rich Hill and Ryu, the Dodgers would have four lefties in the rotation if Wood is the fifth starter. Without saying so, the decisions confirm that 20-year-old Julio Urias will remain at extended spring training when the club leaves for California on Wednesday. Roberts earlier said that Scott Kazmir would begin the season on the disabled list. Brought along slowly early in camp, Ryu has a 2.57 ERA in four Cactus League starts, with 12 strikeouts and one walk in 14 innings.
