LOS ANGELES (AP) — As Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Julio Urias waits to find out if he’ll be the team’s No. 2 starter this season, an even bigger honor awaits him down the road.
Urias is poised to take over as the Dodgers’ top left-handed starter at some point in the near future. Clayton Kershaw, who signed a one-year contract with the Dodgers after the lockout ended, still has the honor of best left-hander. He is one of the best baseball has ever seen. But the Dodgers’ internal torch will eventually have to be passed.
