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.

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.
