The Dodgers send starter Ross Stripling to Blue Jays

Los Angeles – The Los Angeles Dodgers traded right-hander Ross Stripping for two players to the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday.

The 30-year stripping went 3–1 with a 5.61 ERA and 27 strikes in seven starts this season for Los Angeles. The veteran has spent his entire career with the Dodgers, cracking the major league roster in 2016 and earning an All-Star selection in 2018.

Stripling is headed for Toronto to rejoin longtime Dodgers starter Hyun-jin Ryu, who left for an $ 80 million free-agent deal at Offshin. Blue Jayce has dramatically added its pitching staff to the deadline with the addition of Stripling, Robbie Ray and Taijuan Walker.

Although the stripping is a steady, dependable arm, the major league-leading Dodgers still have a wealth of rotation candidates from last season after a tremendous upheaval in their starting pitching.

Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler, Behind the Stars, will select the Dodgers Julio Urias, Alex Wood and promising youngsters Dustin May and Tony Gonsolin to debut in their playoff push. Wood has made only one start this season due to shoulder swelling, while Buehler will miss an upcoming start on the injured list with a blister on his pitching arm.

The Dodgers sent stripping and outfielder Jock Pedersen to the Los Angeles Angels earlier this year in a trade for infielder Luis Rengifo during the original Spring Training. Angels owner Art Moreno put an end to the trade when negotiations over the Dodgers takeover of Mukki Bates from Boston ended.

Toronto acquired Jonathan Villar from Miami at the trade deadline.
