The Dodgers expect Ryan Bebeute to be in the Taxi squad ahead of a potential MLB debut

There are only four games left for the Los Angeles Dodgers to play 32 over 31 days thanks to a double player this month, and it’s sure to impact the stadium staff.

Their rotation at the start has been a strong point for the team this season, led by Walker Buehler, Clayton Kershaw and Julio Urreas. Meanwhile, Tyler Anderson, Tony Gonsulin and Andrew Heaney, who is currently on the 10-day hit list, also did well.

However, due to their double header last Saturday against the Chicago Cubs, the Dodgers need another key player for the Pittsburgh Pirates to make sure no one ends up taking the pile on a short respite.

Shooters under consideration to start included Ryan Pepiot, Andre Jackson and Robbie Erlin. Of those, Erlene is the only one on the active roster, but the Dodgers put Pepiot in their cab squad, suggesting he could be the favorite and make his MLB debut on Wednesday according to the David Vasig from Sports Radio AM 570 LA:

Pepiot is one of the top prospects in the Dodgers organization and did very well in Triple-A Oklahoma City.

His strong start to the season earned him the Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Month award for April. In his five starts during that time, the Dodgers’ No. 2 stinging prospect went 2-0 with a 1.66 ERA.

The right-hander was selected in the third round of the 2019 MLB Draft and is considered close to making his debut soon. The Dodgers considered him last season, but Pepiot struggled after being promoted to Triple-A.

Although close to his start, Pepiot said he’s only focused on improving his abilities to make sure he’s ready when his time comes and not on how close he is to winning the promotion.

Two beginnings of Pepiot?

If the Dodgers add Pepiot to their active roster to start on Wednesday, he could be selected the following day and rejoin the team again next week when they play a double header against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Pepiot will be eligible to be summoned as the 27th double-headed player, which does not require the player to wait the standard ten days to return after being selected.
