The Dodgers take a huge decision regarding Julio Urías

Left-hander Julio Urias replaced left-handed reliever Scott Alexander for the Dodgers' National League Championship Series roster that was submitted before Friday's Game 1 against the Brewers.

Urias pitched only four Major League innings this year as he returned from last year's shoulder capsule surgery. He hasn't pitched in an MLB game since Sept. 30, but management apparently feels he could be an answer to Milwaukee's left-handed hitting MVP candidate Christian Yelich.

The Dodgers went with a 12-man pitching staff, and the bullpen has three lefties -- Urias, Alex Wood and rookie Caleb Ferguson.

No changes were made in the 13 position players that were on the roster for the NL Division Series victory over the Braves.
