Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Optioned to Triple-A
The Dodgers optioned Stone to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Stone gave up 10 runs over 13 innings across three appearances during his latest stint in the majors, and he will now return to the minors amid his struggles. Michael Grove (lat) will return from the injured list to replace Stone on the active roster.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Takes loss as primary pitcher
Stone (1-1) took the loss Friday as the Dodgers fell 5-1 to the Giants, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five over 4.1 innings of relief.
He worked behind opener Caleb Ferguson, who pitched a scoreless inning. Stone ended up getting tagged for home runs by Mike Yastrzemski and Thairo Estrada, accounting for all three runs on his line. Friday marked the third time in Stone's last four outings that he has given up multiple home runs. He's now sitting on a 9.00 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and 22:13 K:BB through 31 innings over eight appearances (four starts) for the season.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Gets last 10 outs for save
Stone allowed a hit and two walks while striking out five over 3.1 scoreless innings to earn the save in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Mariners.
Stone was initially expected to be a bulk reliever but instead finished off the game after strong performances from opener Shelby Miller and Ryan Yarbrough, who went 4.2 innings. This was Stone's first scoreless outing in the majors, and just the second time he's allowed fewer than four runs. He's at a 9.45 ERA, 2.03 WHIP and 17:11 K:BB through 26.2 innings over seven appearances. He may continue to work in some sort of piggyback role with Yarbrough, though Clayton Kershaw's workload is also being managed to close out the regular season. In any case, Stone should next be available to pitch near the end of the upcoming week.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: To pitch Sunday
Stone will pitch Sunday against the Mariners as either a traditional starter or bulk reliever, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Stone pitched as a traditional starter Monday and struggled across 5.1 innings against San Diego. Manager Dave Roberts' wording Friday, when he indicated that Stone would work "the bulk innings", suggests that the right-hander will follow an opener this time around, though it's unclear who will fill that role. Emmet Sheehan was originally projected to start Sunday but could throw a shorter outing instead with the Dodgers likely monitoring his innings carefully.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Poor outing in spot start
Stone allowed seven runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out two over 5.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Padres.
Stone pitched with a lead for much of his outing, but he let it slip away in the sixth inning. The right-hander was making his first major-league appearance since Aug. 27, but he's now allowed at least four runs in five of his six outings this season. It shakes out as a 10.80 ERA, 2.19 WHIP and 12:9 K:BB through 23.1 innings overall. It's unclear if he'll remain in the majors, though it seems like the Dodgers would fare better with Emmet Sheehan as their fifth starter after Stone's latest disappointing effort.... See More ...

Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Set to start Monday
Stone will be called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start Monday's game against the Padres, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Clayton Kershaw was initially slated to start Monday, but his start was pushed back to Friday to better line up his appearances for late in the season ahead of the playoffs. As a result, Stone will rejoin the major-league club, while Ryan Yarbrough will be placed on the paternity list in a corresponding move. Stone has had a lackluster start to his big-league career, posting a 10.50 ERA and 2.28 WHIP in 18 innings over five appearances (three starts). If he performs well Monday, Stone could end up temporarily sticking around as the Dodgers' No. 5 starter over Emmet Sheehan.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Sent down to Triple-A
Stone was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday.
After getting the call from Triple-A on Sunday, Stone was deployed as a bulk reliever behind Caleb Ferguson in the Dodgers' series finale with Boston, pitching six innings and giving up four runs on five hits while picking up the win. Though the Dodgers have an opening in the rotation, the team appears likely to call up Ryan Pepiot from Triple-A to start Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks rather than sticking with Stone. By moving Stone back to the minors, the Dodgers were able to clear room on the 26-man active roster for waiver pickup Tyson Miller. Stone should settle back into the Oklahoma City rotation upon rejoining the club.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: First career win
Stone (1-0) earned the win in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Red Sox. He allowed four runs on five hits and zero walks while striking out two over six innings.
Recalled to make his first big-league appearance since July 4, Stone entered in the second and went six innings to earn his first career victory. Stone had allowed 17 earned runs over 12 innings over his previous four appearances but has pitched effectively in Triple-A since his most recent demotion, earning a 2.85 ERA with 49 strikeouts and 15 walks over 41 innings. It remains to be seen if this effort will earn Stone more opportunities moving forward for the Dodgers.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Recalled for bulk relief
Stone was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City and will serve as the Dodgers' bulk pitcher Sunday at Boston, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old right-hander is expected to follow opener Caleb Ferguson in Sunday's series finale at Fenway Park. Stone has allowed 18 runs -- 17 earned -- in 12 innings of work this season at the major-league level.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Slated for bulk relief
Stone will be called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City to serve as a bulk reliever behind opening pitcher Caleb Ferguson in Sunday's game in Boston, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Stone made four appearances (three starts) for the Dodgers earlier this season and posted a 12.75 ERA and 3.00 WHIP over 12 innings, but the team will bring him back and see how he fares while working behind an opener. In seven outings with Oklahoma City since the All-Star break, Stone has delivered a 3.34 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 41:15 K:BB across 35 frames.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Promotion imminent
Stone will be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday to pitch against the Red Sox, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
The Dodgers haven't determined whether Stone will start or follow an opener Sunday, but he will pitch in some fashion against Boston. The 24-year-old righty has allowed 17 runs across 12 innings in four major-league starts this season, but he's put up a 2.85 ERA and 1.02 WHIP since returning to Triple-A in July.... See More ...

Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Sent back to minors
Stone was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
He made a two-inning relief appearance for the Dodgers on Tuesday and is now being replaced with a fresh arm. Stone presumably will be re-inserted into Oklahoma City's rotation.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Works two innings Tuesday
Stone was charged with a blown save against the Pirates on Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits and one walk while striking out three batters over two innings.
Stone was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday and got his first major-league look as a reliever in the fifth inning Tuesday. The right-hander gave up a pair of singles in his first frame but was able to escape trouble; however, he wasn't able to keep Pittsburgh off the scoreboard in the sixth, as the Pirates tallied a run on a trio of singles. Stone has struggled to get runners out in his first taste of the big leagues this season, posting a 12.75 ERA, 3.00 WHIP and 8:8 K:BB over 12 innings.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Gavin Stone: Back with big-league club
Stone was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Stone will get the call to the big-league squad to give Los Angeles a fresh arm after Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) was sent to the 15-day injured list. Stone has gotten roughed up through three starts so far this season (14.40 ERA and 3.00 WHIP with a 5:7 K:BB across 10 frames), though he's drawn tough opponents in Philadelphia, Atlanta and Tampa Bay. The right-hander is expected to be available in long relief Monday night in the event Michael Grove struggles.... See More ... See Less
