Player Outlook
Ryan Pepiot's spring training ended with an oblique injury which led to him nearly five months at the big league level as he did not make his first major league start until Aug. 19. Pepiot worked 62.2 innings between Triple-A and the majors with excellent ratios and a 64:10 K:BB. Big league hitters hit no better than .203 off any one of his offerings while each of them had at least a 23 percent whiff rate. He did allow a homer in five of his eight outings including multiple homers in two of them, which is something to watch as he continues to hone his craft. Pepiot did work just over 100 innings in 2021 and 127 in 2002, so a projected workload of 140 innings should be reasonable for him in 2024. Banking on Pepiot for 160-plus innings in 2023 would be greedy, so draft him accordingly, as his workload could be managed a bit. Adding another pitch to his repertoire would help him reduce his issues against righties.

  • Rays' Ryan Pepiot: Sharp in second win

    Pepiot (2-2) earned the win against the Angels on Thursday, allowing one run on three hits and three walks over six innings. He struck out seven. It was a strong bounce-back effort from Pepiot after he allowed five runs in a loss to San Francisco in his last start. The right-hander blanked the Angels through five innings Thursday, ultimately allowing a lone run on a sacrifice fly in the sixth. It's been a mixed bag for Pepiot through four starts this year, though his underlying metrics are impressive. He lowered his ERA to 4.37 with an encouraging 1.01 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB across 22.2 innings this season.

  • Rays' Ryan Pepiot: Allows two homers in loss

    Pepiot (1-2) took the loss against the Giants on Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and one walk while striking out six over five innings. Pepiot got off to a bit of a rough start but was able to limit the damage early, allowing one run in the first inning while needing 24 pitches to get through the frame. He then went on to retire eight of the next nine batters he faced before surrendering a solo homer to Thairo Estrada with two outs in the top of the fourth. It was one of two home runs allowed on the day for Pepiot, and he's now given up at least four runs in two of his first three starts to open the season. On a positive note, Pepiot has produced a nice 20:5 K:BB over that early stretch and has gone at least five innings in each outing.

  • Rays' Ryan Pepiot: Tagged with six runs

    Pepiot (0-1) allowed six runs on four hits and four walks over 5.2 frames Monday, striking out three and taking a loss against Texas. Pepiot served up a three-run homer to Josh Jung in the first inning but was able to keep the Rangers off the board for the next four frames. Texas broke through again in the sixth inning to tack on three more runs. Pepiot threw just 53 of 94 pitches for strikes, including 11 whiffs. He'll look for better results in his next outing, which is currently projected to be in Colorado this weekend.

  • Rays' Ryan Pepiot: Snags rotation spot

    Pepiot will be included in the Rays' Opening Day rotation and is scheduled to make his first start April 1 versus the Rangers at Tropicana Field, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Though he'll be taking the hill for the Rays' fifth game of the season, Pepiot is essentially opening the season as the team's No. 4 starter, as Tyler Alexander will make his debut one game before Pepiot but looks to be in line for a bulk-relief role and may have his turn in the rotation skipped during lighter portions of the schedule. Pepiot concluded the Grapefruit League with a 6.75 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 13.1 innings, but a 16:3 K:BB provides a better indication of how well he pitched this spring. The 26-year-old right-hander could have his workload managed to some degree as he begins his first season in Tampa Bay, but he turned in sterling ratios during his time in the big leagues with the Dodgers over the past two seasons and should be useful on a per-inning basis.

  • Rays' Ryan Pepiot: Fans three in first spring outing

    Pepiot allowed three hits and walked one while striking out three across two scoreless innings in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays. Pepiot allowed three hitters to reach base in the first inning and stranded the bases loaded by striking out Davis Schneider. He pitched a much cleaner second frame to end his spring debut on a high note. Pepiot should fill an Opening Day rotation spot and will look to turn in a full season of work after an injury-plagued 2023 campaign with the Dodgers.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: In mix for NLDS Game 3

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday that Pepiot is "in play" to pitch in Game 3 of the NLDS on Wednesday at Arizona, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports. Pepiot could either work in bulk relief behind Lance Lynn or get the start himself as the best-of-five National League Division Series shifts from Dodger Stadium to Chase Field. Pepiot made only eight appearances -- three starts -- in the majors during the regular season but dominated to the tune of a 2.14 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 38:5 K:BB in 42 innings.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Strong as primary pitcher

    Pepiot allowed a run on five hits and a walk while striking out four over six innings in a no-decision versus the Tigers on Tuesday. Pepiot gave up a solo home run to Parker Meadows in the third inning, but that was it. Unfortunately for Pepiot, the Dodgers' offense was quiet and couldn't get ahead until the ninth inning. This was Pepiot's fifth time allowing one run or fewer across his six appearances this season. He's at a 1.91 ERA, 0.70 WHIP and 26:3 K:BB through 33 innings. He's projected to make his next appearance on the road in Colorado.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Working behind opener Tuesday

    Pepiot is slated to pitch in bulk relief behind an opening pitcher in Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Luca Evans of The Orange County Register reports. Though Dave Roberts didn't announce which pitcher he would use in front of Pepiot, the 26-year-old right-hander will stick in the rotation and is expected to cover the brunt of the innings Tuesday. After turning in an 0.86 ERA, 0.52 WHIP and 17:2 K:BB in 21 innings over his first four big-league outings of the season, Pepiot took a step back in his most recent outing last Wednesday, taking a loss to the Padres after giving up four runs on six hits over six innings.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Struggles with homers Wednesday

    Pepiot (2-1) allowed four runs on six hits and struck out five without walking a batter over six innings, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Padres. Pepiot had allowed just two runs across his first 21 innings this season. That changed Wednesday when he allowed a solo home run to Juan Soto and a three-run blast to Luis Campusano. Despite the mediocre start, Pepiot is at a 2.00 ERA, 0.63 WHIP and 22:2 K:BB through 27 innings over five appearances (three starts). The right-hander hasn't looked out of place in the majors, and he should be penciled in for a home start versus the Tigers next week.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Dominant in Miami

    Pepiot (2-0) earned the win Thursday, allowing one hit over seven scoreless innings against Miami. He struck out three without issuing any walks. The 26-year-old was perfect through 6.2 innings before Josh Bell grounded a single up the middle. Pepiot tallied only three strikeouts for the second consecutive outing, but he was extremely efficient, needing just 84 pitches (60 strikes) to complete seven frames for the first time in his young career. After posting a 6.7 BB/9 in his first stint in the big-leagues last year, Pepiot has issued just two walks in 21 innings this season with a sterling 0.86 ERA and minuscule 0.52 WHIP. The rookie is currently scheduled for a home matchup against the Padres early next week.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Possible waiver wire pickups

    It's not the way anyone wanted it to happen, but Julio Urias' legal and personal troubles may have finally cleared a spot for Pepiot. We can hope, anyway. The 26-year-old is back for another turn Thursday, and if it goes much like his previous three, in which he allowed two earned runs in 14 innings, he may well stick around this time. What stands out most in those three appearances is that he walked just two and threw 67 percent of his pitches for strikes. In fact, between the majors and minors this year, he has issued just 1.7 BB/9, throwing 65 percent of his pitches for strikes. That's compared to 4.4 and 63 percent last year. If he's solved his control woes without sacrificing the strikeout potential he's demonstrated in the past, then he's poised to be a big winner for the Dodgers.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Recalled ahead of Thursday's start

    Pepiot was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday. Pepiot is slated to start Thursday's game in Miami. The young right-hander has been terrific in three appearances (one start) for the Dodgers this season, holding a 1.29 ERA and 14:2 K:BB over 14 innings. The Dodgers are in need of rotation help, giving Pepiot the chance to make multiple starts down the stretch if he continues to pitch well.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Optioned back to OKC

    The Dodgers optioned Pepiot to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday. Pepiot scattered two hits and one walk over five scoreless innings en route to his first major-league win of the season Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks, but the Dodgers are activating a fresh bullpen arm in Shelby Miller (neck) prior to their four-game series against Atlanta. Pepiot boasts a 1.29 ERA and 14:2 K:BB in 14 big-league innings this year and should get more of an extended opportunity in September.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Earns win over Arizona

    Pepiot (1-0) allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three over five shutout innings to earn the win in Wednesday's 7-0 victory over the Diamondbacks. Pepiot threw 54 of 84 pitches for strikes in his first start and third appearance for the Dodgers this year. He's been excellent while working on a starter's schedule over the last couple of weeks, allowing just two runs, eight hits and two walks while striking out 14 over 14 innings. With rosters expanding Friday, Pepiot may be able to stay in the majors this time around -- his previous two outings came as the 27th man in doubleheaders. With that in mind, he's tentatively lined up for a road appearance in Miami next week.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Getting start Wednesday

    Pepiot will be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start for the Dodgers on Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Things had been pointing toward Pepiot taking the ball Wednesday and manager Dave Robert confirmed as much following his team's win over Arizona on Tuesday. Pepiot yielded one run over four innings in a bulk-relief appearance for the Dodgers last week and could have a relatively limited workload Wednesday.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Could return to start Wednesday

    The Dodgers could recall Pepiot from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start Wednesday's home game against the Diamondbacks, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Pepiot had been optioned to Oklahoma City this past Friday, but because his demotion came after he served as the 27th man for the Dodgers' doubleheader with the Guardians, he's eligible to return to the big club in fewer than the minimum 15 days. Assuming the Dodgers tab Pepiot to fill the opening in their rotation Wednesday, he should stick around as the club's No. 5 starter heading into September. Though he didn't make his 2023 debut at any level until after the All-Star break while he recovered from an oblique injury that cropped up in spring training, Pepiot has excelled over his six starts with Oklahoma City (3.97 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 26:5 K:BB in 22.2 innings) and his two outings with the Dodgers (2.00 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 11:1 K:BB in nine innings).

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Heads back to Triple-A

    The Dodgers optioned Pepiot to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday. Pepiot has looked good in his first two appearances with the Dodgers in 2023, both of which came when Los Angeles designated him as its 27th man Aug. 19 and this past Thursday. He ended up being deployed as a bulk reliever out of the bullpen Thursday versus the Guardians, striking out six over four innings while giving up one run on three hits and no walks. Though Pepiot will head back to the minors, he could rejoin the Dodgers next week when the team requires a fifth member of the rotation once again.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Lined up for bulk of innings

    Pepiot will be the Dodgers' bulk pitcher in their second game Thursday at Cleveland, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Pepiot might follow an opener -- probably Caleb Ferguson -- but the Dodgers aren't setting anything in stone until they get through the remainder of Wednesday's suspended game. Pepiot still has to be officially recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he's pitched to a 3.97 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 26:5 K:BB in 22.2 innings (six starts) this year. He tallied five strikeouts over five innings of one-run ball in his MLB season debut last week against the Marlins before getting sent back down to the farm.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Set to start Thursday

    Pepiot will be called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start Thursday against the Guardians, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. The 26-year-old was sent down after he allowed a run over five frames in his season debut last week, and he'll rejoin the Dodgers on Thursday for what's likely to be a longer look in the rotation. Pepiot had a 3.47 ERA over nine outings in his first taste of the majors last year, and he should have the chance to finish the campaign in Los Angeles' rotation after Tony Gonsolin (forearm) was recently labeled as unlikely to return this season.

  • Dodgers' Ryan Pepiot: Returns to Triple-A

    The Dodgers optioned Pepiot to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday. Pepiot was summoned from Triple-A to serve as the Dodgers' 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader with the Marlins. He ended up starting the first game of the twin bill in what was his 2023 MLB debut, striking out five over five innings of one-run ball while taking a no-decision in the Dodgers' 3-1 win. Though Pepiot is healthy again after missing much of the season with an oblique injury, the Dodgers' decision to return him to the minors suggests that he might not be the next man up to stay in the rotation as the No. 5 starter while the team looks to replace Tony Gonsolin (forearm), who is likely out for the season. Instead, Emmet Sheehan, who has struck out 11 over eight innings while giving up one earned run in two outings since returning to Oklahoma City earlier this month, could be called up to fill the void when the Dodgers next require a fifth starter this weekend in Boston.
