Julio Urias will make at least two more starts this month.

Julio Urias will start for the Dodgers next week after facing the Washington Nationals on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium.

“He’s earned the right to keep going, and we’re looking forward to that start tomorrow,” manager Dave Roberts said. “He’ll make the next one after that. He’ll for sure get one more. We’ll continue to evaluate.”

Carlos Frias and Mike Bolsinger are unavailable to take the open spot in the rotation Friday in Pittsburgh. But Roberts would not say who will start that game.

Clayton Kershaw earned his paycheck Monday in a 4-1 Dodgers win over the Washington Nationals.

The box score is here.

Zach Lee is looking forward to his new opportunity in the Mariners organization.

The Dodgers went 5-1 in their six games prior to today, only to lose a half-game in the National League West standings. The Giants’ eight-game winning streak ended Monday with a 1-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, so the Dodgers within 5 ½ games of first place. They’re six games over .500 for the first time all season.

Dodgers’ 23rd-round draft pick elects to return to college.

Pitcher Bailey Ober, the Dodgers’ 23rd-round draft pick, will return to the College of Charleston for his redshirt junior season.

From the school’s official athletic department website:

Ober, a 2016 All-CAA second team selection, underwent Tommy John surgery in 2015 and returned to lead the CofC pitching staff with 96 strikeouts in 97 innings in 2016. The Charlotte, N.C., native is 17-7 with a 2.47 ERA in his career at College of Charleston. The Dodgers selected him with the 701st overall pick in the 23rd round.

“I am thankful to the Dodgers organization for selecting me,” Ober said. “However, I have two years of eligibility left and want to help lead the Cougars to Omaha and hopefully improve my position in the draft.”

The Dodgers are believed to have come to an agreement with 22 of their 42 draft picks.
