  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Secures NLDS roster spot

    Grove is on the Dodgers' roster for the NLDS, Eric Stephen of reports.

    Despite holding an unimpressive 6.13 ERA on the season, Grove has been solid since coming back from the injured list Sept. 23. Since then, he's logged five scoreless innings and struck out six batters while walking one, helping him to beat out Ryan Yarbrough for a spot on the NLDS roster.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Returns from IL

    The Dodgers reinstated Grove (lat) from the 15-day injured list Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The 26-year-old has been on the shelf since early August due to tightness in his right lat, and his return will force Gavin Stone off the major-league roster. Grove has pitched to a 6.61 ERA through 64 innings on the year, but manager Dave Roberts said the right-hander would be given "every opportunity" to compete for a spot on the Dodgers' playoff roster.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Two scoreless innings in return

    Grove allowed a walk and struck out three over two scoreless innings in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Giants.

    Grove worked the seventh and eighth innings and helped preserve the Dodgers' shutout. This was his fourth relief appearance in 16 outings this year, and it's likely he'll work out of the bullpen for the rest of the regular season as well as the postseason, assuming he is on the playoff roster. Grove has a 6.41 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 70:19 K:BB through 66 innings this season.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: On track for Saturday

    Grove (lat) is expected to be activated from the 15-day injured list Saturday, Matthew Moreno of reports.

    That's the word from Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who added that Grove will be given "every opportunity" to earn a spot in the team's postseason bullpen mix. Out since early August due to a right lat injury, the 26-year-old struck out four of the five batters he faced in his third and final rehab appearance Wednesday with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Could return during weekend series

    Grove (lat) might be able to return either Saturday or Sunday against the Giants, Matthew Moreno of reports.

    Grove has been recovering from a right lat injury and continues to inch closer toward activation. He was sent out on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sept. 7 and could be cleared to return sometime over the weekend according to skipper Dave Roberts.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Could rejoin LA next week

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday that Grove (lat) could rejoin the team on its next homestand, per the Associated Press.

    Grove hasn't pitched for Los Angeles since Aug. 5, when he went 1.1 innings as an opener. The right-hander landed on the injured list the following day due to lat soreness and has made just one rehab appearance since, allowing two runs on three hits while striking out three batters for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sept. 7. It's not clear what Grove has been doing to rehab since, but it appears that he could nonetheless return to the Dodgers, likely as a bullpen arm, as soon as Monday, when the team begins a seven-game homestand against Detroit and San Francisco.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Beginning rehab assignment

    Grove (lat) is set to begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    It has already been determined that Grove will be returning to the Dodgers as a reliever, so this should be a relatively brief rehab stint even though he's been sidelined for over a month due to lat tightness. The 26-year-old right-hander carries a 6.61 ERA and 67:18 K:BB in 64 major-league innings (12 starts, three relief appearances) this season with Los Angeles.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Nearing activation

    Grove (lat) is expected to return to the Dodgers in a relief role early next week, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Grove has primarily worked as a starter this season, but the 26-year-old right-hander is poised to operate in a multi-inning bullpen gig down the stretch following a month-long stay on the major-league injured list for a bout of right lat tightness. Ryan Pepiot will be the rotation replacement for Julio Urias, who is now on administrative leave following his Sunday arrest on suspicion of felony domestic violence.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Could return next weekend

    Grove (lat) has been throwing at the Dodgers' complex in Arizona and could be activated to join the big-league bullpen next weekend, Eric Stephen of reports.

    Grove has been on the shelf with right lat tightness since Aug. 5 but has recently been able to resume throwing. The right-hander may go on a minor-league rehab assignment with Los Angeles' Triple-A club in Oklahoma City prior to making his return to the majors, with the Dodgers' series in Washington that begins Sept. 8 looking like the target for his activation. Grove has started in 12 of his 15 appearances with the big-league club this season but will be a part of the team's bullpen upon his return, per Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Lands on injured list

    Grove was placed on the 15-day injured list with right lat tightness Sunday.

    Grove served as an opener Saturday against the Padres and struck out four in 1.1 scoreless innings, but he's apparently now dealing with an injury and will miss time. It's unclear whether he'll need to miss more than the minimum of 15 days, but left-hander Bryan Hudson was called up Sunday to take his place on the active roster.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Starting Saturday

    The Dodgers announced Grove will start Saturday's game against the Padres, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander was expected to move to the bullpen after he gave up eight runs in his previous outing, but he'll end up receiving another start Saturday. However, Grove may not have the workload of a traditional starter with Ryan Yarbrough a likely option to piggyback.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Functions as opener Saturday

    Grove allowed a hit and struck out four without walking a batter over 1.1 scoreless innings Saturday versus the Padres. He did not factor in the decision.

    Grove was announced as the starter, but it ended up being more of an opener situation, with Ryan Yarbrough following him with 4.1 innings in bulk relief. That kind of arrangement may be the only way Grove sticks on the major-league roster in the near term. He was touched up for eight runs over six innings in his last start and still carries a 6.61 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 67:18 K:BB through 64 innings this season. While his strikeout numbers are solid, he'll likely be limited to low-leverage situations if he ends up as a traditional reliever going forward.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Grinds out six innings

    Grove (2-3) allowed eight runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out 10 over six innings to take the loss Sunday versus the Reds.

    It wasn't pretty, as the Reds were ahead 3-0 after the first inning and 7-0 after the third before taking their foot off the gas. Grove hadn't pitched poorly in July, but this outing could be enough for him to lose his rotation spot to Lance Lynn, who is set to make his Dodgers debut Tuesday. Grove is at a 6.75 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 63:28 K:BB through 62.2 innings over 14 appearances (11 starts). It's unclear if Grove will be moved to the bullpen or optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City should he ultimately be taken out of the starting mix.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Strikes out six

    Grove allowed two runs on eight hits and struck out six without walking a batter over 4.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays on Monday.

    Grove was decent aside from the eight hits, throwing 48 of 68 pitches for strikes in the short start. It was just the second time all season he's avoided walking a batter. The right-hander is now at a 6.19 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 53:17 K:BB through 56.2 innings over 13 appearances (10 starts). Grove should stick in the rotation for another turn at home over the weekend versus the Reds. He may eventually lose his major-league roster spot with Noah Syndergaard (finger) and Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) working back from injuries.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Notches second win

    Grove (2-2) earned the win Tuesday, allowing a run on five hits and two walks over five innings against the Orioles. He struck out four.

    Grove was solid Tuesday, holding Baltimore to a single run on an Aaron Hicks double in the second inning. It's an encouraging outing for the 26-year-old right-hander, lowering his ERA to a still-subpar 6.40 with a 1.54 WHIP and 47:17 K:BB through 52 innings. Grove will likely stick in the Dodgers' rotation until Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) can return from the IL. He's lined up to face the Blue Jays at home in his next outing.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Picks up first win

    Grove (1-2) allowed four runs on six hits and a walk while striking out six over six innings to earn the win over the Angels on Saturday.

    Grove worked behind opener Alex Vesia, who tossed a scoreless first inning. Grove's outing began with four scoreless innings before he gave up four runs over his last two frames. The right-hander now has a 6.89 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 43:15 K:BB through 47 innings across 11 appearances (eight starts) this season. Grove's stay in a starting or bulk-relief role likely depends on how much longer Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) will be out.

  • Dodgers' Michael Grove: Slated to pitch Saturday

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Grove is expected to either start or cover the bulk of the innings out of the bullpen during Saturday's game against the Angels, Eric Stephen of reports.

    The Dodgers' decision to add Triple-A Oklahoma City starter Landon Knack to the taxi squad Thursday created some uncertainty about whether Grove would pitch in the Los Angeles' final game before the All-Star break, but the right-hander looks like he'll make a second straight turn through the rotation after all. After being called up from Triple-A on Monday as a replacement for the injured Clayton Kershaw (shoulder), Grove proceeded to cover four innings in a starting role and gave up one run on five hits and two walks while taking a no-decision against the Pirates.
