The Los Angeles Dodgers placed Ross Stripling on the 10-day disabled list with right first toe inflammation and recalled relief pitcher Dylan Floro from Triple-A Oklahoma City.


Stripling started Sunday afternoon’s game against the Atlanta Braves and had one of his worst outings of the season. He allowed seven hits and four runs in just four innings while striking out five and walking one.

After getting off to a phenomenal start to the season and being named an All-Star for the first time in his career, Stripling has struggled in his last few starts. The right-hander has allowed four runs in three of his last five outings.

As he approached setting a new career high in innings pitched, it was believed that fatigue may have played a factor in Stripling’s recent struggles.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts did say that the toe injury is something Stripling has been dealing with for a few weeks, so that also could be a reason for his struggles.

Overall in 27 games (16 starts) this season, Stripling is 8-3 with a 2.68 ERA, 3.09 FIP and 1.14 WHIP while striking out 119 and walking 15 in 104 innings.

Floro was recently acquired in a trade with the Cincinnati Reds, and he pitched in six games for the Dodgers before being optioned to Oklahoma City.

In 7.1 innings with the Dodgers, Floro posted a 3.68 ERA and 0.82 WHIP. In 43.2 overall innings between the Reds and Dodgers he has pitched to a 2.89 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. Floro has 35 combined strikeouts compared to 14 walks.

He only pitched one inning in his short stint in Oklahoma City, giving up one hit and one run.
