Top Michael Grove News

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Out with bruised knee

    Grove was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a bruised left knee, Matthew Moreno of DodgerBlue.com reports.

    Grove had X-rays come back negative after he was struck in the knee by a comebacker during his start against the Rockies on Saturday, and he'll now spend at least the next couple weeks on the injured list. The 25-year-old will be eligible to be activated Oct. 16, but he may not be on the Dodgers' postseason roster even when healthy.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Struggles in fourth inning

    Grove allowed four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings in a no-decision versus the Rockies on Saturday.

    Grove cruised through three innings, but he ran into trouble in the fourth. Ryan McMahon tagged him for a solo home run and Randal Grichuk added a three-run homer to put the Rockies ahead, though the Dodgers later wiped out the deficit to get Grove off the hook. This was the third time in his last four starts the right-hander has allowed multiple homers. He has a 4.60 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB through 29.1 innings across seven appearances (six starts) in the majors this year, though it's likely he works out of the bullpen if he makes the Dodgers' NLDS roster.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Notches first career win

    Grove (1-0) earned the win during Sunday's 4-1 victory over St. Louis, allowing one run on three hits and one walk with three strikeouts in five innings.

    Grove was spotted an early two-run lead and limited St. Louis to one run on three baserunners in the second inning en route to his first career win. Manger Dave Roberts opted to pull the 25-year-old after only 69 pitches with the heart of the Cardinals' lineup due to bat a third time in the sixth, and he's now gone exactly five innings in each of three September starts. Grove possesses a 4.07 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with 21 strikeouts in 24.1 innings across six appearances and five starts.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Will stay in rotation

    Grove is scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    The Dodgers will keep Grove on hand as part of a six-man rotation after he made his first turn of the week in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Diamondbacks. He took a no-decision in that outing after allowing five runs (three earned) over five frames, bringing his ERA to 4.66 across his first 19.1 innings in the big leagues. With the Dodgers well on their way to finishing with the National League's top record, Grove could remain part of a six-man rotation over the final week and a half of the season as the team aims to give its other starting pitchers added rest in advance of the playoffs.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Fans seven in no-decision

    Grove didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks, giving up five runs (three earned) on nine hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out seven.

    The rookie right-hander was hit hard as five of the nine hits off him went for extra bases, including homers by Daulton Varsho in the third inning and Christian Walker in the fifth. However, the Dodgers got him off the hook for his first big-league loss with a five-run rally in the eighth. Since becoming Los Angeles' de facto sixth starter at the end of August and spotting in and out of the rotation, he's posted a 4.30 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 15:3 K:BB through 14.2 innings over three starts.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Getting another start

    Grove will start Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Grove will get at least one more turn through the rotation after also facing Arizona in his last spot start Sept. 14, though he's likely to serve as more of an opener Tuesday before Ryan Pepiot takes over, per J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News. Grove found success in his first showing against the Diamondbacks, surrendering two runs on two hits and one walk while fanning four over five innings of work.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Goes five innings in spot start

    Grove did not factor in the decision against Arizona on Wednesday, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk over five innings. He struck out four batters.

    Grove yielded only two hits in his five frames, but each was a solo homer. They were the first two long balls he has served up in his brief big-league career, but this was arguably his best major-league outing, as he completed a career-high five innings and allowed a career-low three baserunners. Grove isn't expected to remain in the Dodgers' rotation for long, but he could get another start next week since the team has a doubleheader against Arizona on Tuesday.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Promoted for Wednesday's start

    Grove was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City and will start Wednesday at Arizona, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Grove has a 4.82 ERA across 9.1 frames in the majors this season and will rejoin the Dodgers on Wednesday for another spot start. In 14 appearances for Oklahoma City this year he has a 4.07 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 68:21 K:BB across 59.2 innings.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Set to start Wednesday

    Manager Dave Roberts said the Dodgers plan to promote Grove from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Grove made a spot start for Los Angeles in late August and gave up two runs over 4.2 innings, and he'll rejoin the big club for another outing Wednesday. The right-hander has spent most of the year with Oklahoma City and has a 4.07 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 68:21 K:BB across 59.2 innings.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Returns to minors after spot start

    The Dodgers optioned Grove to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

    Grove will head back to Oklahoma City after he made what proved to be a spot start for the Dodgers on Monday, when he was summoned on short notice to fill in for Tony Gonsolin (forearm). The rookie, who took a no-decision against the Marlins after allowing two earned runs and striking out four over 4.2 innings, is likely to be replaced in the rotation by Clayton Kershaw (back), who looks on track to come off the 15-day injured list as early as Thursday. The Dodgers could expand their rotation to six men to provide more rest to their other pitchers in September, but Ryan Pepiot appears to be a likelier bet than Grove to rejoin the big club if a sixth starter is needed.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Fans four in no-decision

    Grove did not factor in the decision against Miami on Monday, pitching 4.2 innings and allowing two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four batters.

    Grove started in place of Tony Gonsolin, who went on the injured list Monday with a strained right forearm. Grove did well to keep the Dodgers in the game, and he fell one out shy of completing five innings. The rookie hurler threw 42 of 66 pitches for strikes and notched a career-high four strikeouts. In three outings with the Dodgers this season, Grove has posted a 4.82 ERA, 1.82 WHIP and 7:5 K:BB over 9.1 innings

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Called up, starting for Gonsolin

    The Dodgers recalled Grove from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, and he'll start in the Dodgers' series finale versus the Marlins, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Grove will return to the big leagues and replace Tony Gonsolin (forearm) in the Dodgers rotation after Gonsolin was placed on the 15-day injured list Monday. The 25-year-old has appeared in two games (one start) with Los Angeles this season, surrendering three runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out three over 4.2 innings. It's unclear how long he'll remain on the major-league roster, but he'll get at least one turn through the rotation.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Returns to minors

    The Dodgers optioned Grove to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

    Los Angeles called up Grove from Triple-A on Saturday in case a long reliever was needed in the final two games of the team's series with the Giants, but the right-hander ultimately wasn't needed out of the bullpen. The Dodgers still intend to develop Grove as a starter, so he'll head back to Triple-A to make regular turns through Oklahoma City's rotation. Reyes Moronta was called up to replace Grove in the bullpen.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Back in big leagues

    Grove was recalled by the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Grove is up to replace Walker Buehler, who's set to miss an extended period due to a forearm strain. Grove has made one start and one relief appearance thus far in his rookie season, allowing seven runs (three earned) in 4.2 innings while striking out three batters and walking four. While he could replace Buehler in the rotation, the Dodgers have two off days next week and should have Andrew Heaney (shoulder) back from the injured list next weekend, so it looks as though Grove may be a reliever for now.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Heading back to minors

    The Dodgers optioned Grove to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Los Angeles brought up Caleb Ferguson to join the bullpen as a replacement for Grove, whom the organization likely wants to continue making regular starts at Triple-A. Grove was summoned from the minors Saturday when the Dodgers were in need of a multi-inning arm out of the bullpen, but he made just one appearance during his latest stint in the big leagues. He was charged with three earned runs on three hits and a walk in an inning of relief in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Pirates.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Recalled by Dodgers

    Grove was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday.

    Grove made his major-league debut as a starter in mid-May, and he struck out three in 3.2 scoreless innings against the Phillies. While the right-hander will rejoin the major-league roster Saturday, it appears as though he'll be available out of the bullpen for now. Ryan Pepiot was sent down to make room for Grove on the active roster.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Heads back to minors

    Grove was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday.

    Grove was called up for his major-league debut Sunday against the Phillies but spent just one day on the roster before heading back to the minors. He gave up four unearned runs in 3.2 innings in his lone appearance. Caleb Ferguson (elbow) returned from the injured list to claim his roster spot.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Goes 3.2 strong innings in debut

    Grove didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 5-4 win over Philadelphia, allowing four unearned runs on four hits and three walks with three strikeouts in 3.2 innings.

    Making his big-league debut, Grove pitched well aside from the second inning, when a Gavin Lux error extended the inning and led to four unearned runs crossing the plate. The 25-year-old tossed 43 of 70 pitches for strikes and induced eight swinging strikes, though nearly one walk per inning is a bit concerning. It's unclear if Grove did enough to stick with the team for another start.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Promoted for MLB debut

    Grove was called up from Double-A Tulsa ahead of his start Sunday against the Phillies, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The 25-year-old will make his big-league debut Sunday in a spot start, filling the gap in Los Angeles' rotation following the placement of Clayton Kershaw (pelvis) on the injured list. Grove struggled at the Double-A level with a 7.86 ERA last year, but he's pitched well so far in 2022 and has a 2.76 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 22:5 K:BB across 16.1 innings.
