MILWAUKEE — The Los Angeles Dodgers made a surprising decision with their National League Championship Series roster, adding 22-year-old phenom Julio Urias as part of their bullpen mix.

Urias, formerly the organization’s top starting-pitching prospect, made three scoreless relief appearances as a September call-up in his return from shoulder surgery, a procedure that kept him out for more than a year. For their matchup against the Milwaukee Brewers, Urias will essentially replace Scott Alexander as a left-hander out of the bullpen. The rest of the roster remained unchanged.

Urias was on his way to becoming a top-of-the-rotation starter for the Dodgers until undergoing surgery to repair a torn capsule in June 2017.

He struggled at times in his return to the minors late this season, ultimately allowing seven runs on 10 hits
