Rookie Walker Buehler [url=]Antho ny Castonzo Jersey[/url] , the Dodgers‘ top prospect, has been optioned to the minor leagues after struggling in a relief appearance.

The team says Buehler was sent to Class-A Rancho Cucamonga before Friday night’s game against Colorado.

The Dodgers had no choice in making the move since he had been activated on Thursday, when Buehler gave up five runs in one-plus inning of relief in an 11-5 loss to the Cubs. There was no indication when Buehler will next pitch or when he would be recalled to the big-league team.

Buehler originally was set to make a rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday after missing 19 days with a rib microfracture.

He flew to Oklahoma [url=]Joseph Noteboom Jersey[/url] , but the plan was changed and he was immediately called back to Los Angeles. He landed Thursday morning, was activated off the DL and came on in relief of Clayton Kershaw.

Sam Bradford expected to play more this week after getting only eight snaps and one attempt in the preseason opener, and he did.

Bradford turned it over to first-round pick Josh Rosen [url=]Dary l Williams Jersey[/url] , who promptly led the Cardinals on a seven-play, 87-yard drive
