Dodgers Recall Prospect Starter

He's making his case to stay in the major leagues. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled starter Michael Grove from Triple-A Oklahoma City to make a start on Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 

Grove allowed two runs on two hits over five innings in a no-decision in the Dodgers' 10-inning loss to the D-Backs on Wednesday. 

It was the best major league outing of his young career. 

Grove was called up for the spot start and did a good job, allowing home runs to Daulton Varsho and Corbin Carroll but nothing else. It has not yet been decided whether Grove will head back down to the minors or be kept around for another start. 

The twenty-five-year-old now owns a 4.40 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 11 strikeouts over 14 innings and four appearances in the majors.

Grove is the Dodgers' 24th-ranked prospect.
