Dodgers @ Marlins September 7, 2023: Pepiot returns as the Dodgers look to avoid a sweep in Miami

The Dodgers have not started this road trip out on the best note. The pitching is once again in disarray, as Lance Lynn came crashing back to earth hard after a strong start to his Dodger career. Julio Urias is on the restricted list, Clayton Kershaw‘s shoulder is hanging on by a thread and the rotation is looking more and more unstable by the day. Today, they’ve recalled Ryan Pepiot to start the finale against Miami. He’s been up-and-down from the minors and is up in Urias’ rotation spot. He’s been great in his return to the Majors this season, so we’ll see if he can play the role of stopper against the Marlins and Braxton Garrett.

First pitch is scheduled for 3:40 PM PT and will be shown on SportsNet LA.
