Joe Wieland poured in four innings in Wednesday's spot start against the Angels, allowing two runs on four hits in four innings while earning a no-decision.
The two runs scored on an RBI double by David Freese in the second inning and a sacrifice fly by Kole Calhoun in the third. This was Wieland's second start in the majors. Over 8 2/3 innings, he's allowed eight runs on 10 hits. The 25-year-old right-hander held a 4.59 ERA and 92/25 K/BB ratio across 113 2/3 Triple-A innings. He'll pitch out of the bullpen moving forward unless the Dodgers need another spot start down the stretch. Sep 10 - 1:11 AM

Dodgers recalled RHP Joe Wieland from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Wieland struggled in a spot start with the Dodgers earlier this season and held a 4.59 ERA and 92/25 K/BB ratio over 113 2/3 frames at Oklahoma City. It's possible he'll get a start later this month, but he'll be available in long relief for now.
Sep 1 - 6:43 PM

Dodgers optioned RHP Joe Wieland to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Wieland gave up six runs over 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Brewers. But the 25-year-old right-hander may get another shot soon with left-handed starter Hyun-Jin Ryu still battling shoulder discomfort.
May 7 - 11:25 AM

Joe Wieland, making his 2015 debut, was hit hard early by the Brewers in a loss Wednesday as he gave up six runs over 4 2/3 innings.

The Brewers jumped out to a 5-0 lead after the first inning, helped by a pair of two-run home runs from Scooter Gennett and Adam Lind. To his credit, Wieland settled down from there. Overall, he gave up six hits and four walks while striking out two. The Dodgers are in need of starting pitching help with Hyun-Jin Ryu and Brandon McCarthy sidelined, but they may look elsewhere after Wieland's shellacking. If he's allowed to make his next scheduled start, it will come at home against the Marlins.

Dodgers recalled RHP Joe Wieland from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He'll make his Dodgers' debut on Wednesday in Milwaukee. Wieland holds a 3.60 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 22/2 K/BB ratio in 20 innings this season at Oklahoma City. He has a shot to stick in the rotation until Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is ready.
May 6 - 2:23 PM

Joe Wieland has been confirmed as the Dodgers' starter for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Wieland owns a cool 3.60 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 22/2 K/BB ratio in 20 innings this season at Triple-A Oklahoma City and makes for an attractive fantasy streamer against the struggling Brewers. The 25-year-old right-hander could stick around for a bit if he pitches well.
May 5 - 4:55 PM

Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers will recall Joe Wieland to start either Saturday or Sunday in San Diego.

It would allow both Brett Anderson (who's currently scheduled to start Sunday) and Clayton Kershaw to receive an extra day of rest before their next outings. Brandon McCarthy is on the docket for Saturday at the moment. It's not clear whether Wieland would be up for just the one start or if he might stick around for a while. He's put up a 1.80 ERA and 14/1 K/BB ratio over his first 10 innings at Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Apr 24 - 4:06 PM

Dodgers prospect Joe Wieland threw five shutout innings Sunday in a win for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Wieland only allowed two hits while striking out five. He's won each of his first two starts, limiting opponents to a .139 average during that stretch. Wieland has nine games of big league experience on his resume, including a four-game stint with the Padres in 2014. He's the Dodgers' 18th-best prospect, according to
Apr 20 - 3:33 PM

Joe Wieland pitched decently in a losing effort against the White Sox on Tuesday, surrendering two runs on nine hits over his five innings.

Wieland whiffed one and didn't issue a walk in the ballgame. The 25-year-old is currently the leading candidate to open the season in Hyun-Jin Ryu's rotation spot, and this start shouldn't do anything to dissuade that thinking. He boasts a 1.93 ERA and 10/3 K/BB ratio across 14 innings on the spring and should be a worthwhile addition in mixed leagues until Ryu returns.
Mar 31 - 9:19 PM

According to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, right-hander Joe Wieland is the "leading candidate" to replace Hyun-Jin Ryu in the Dodgers' rotation.

Ryu is again dealing with shoulder problems and is expected to have a lengthy disabled list stint to open the 2015 season. That leaves a big opportunity for the 25-year-old Wieland, who was acquired from the Padres in December as part of the Matt Kemp trade and could suddenly take on deep-league fantasy relevance. Wieland owns a cool 3.27 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 8.4 K/9 in 476 2/3 career minor league innings.
Mar 23 - 11:06 AM

Dodgers optioned RHP Joe Wieland to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Weiland was acquired from the Padres back in December as part of the Matt Kemp trade. It would have taken a rash of injuries for the right-hander to crack the Dodgers' season-opening starting rotation.
Mar 16 - 2:31 PM

Dodgers acquired RHP Joe Wieland from the Padres in the Matt Kemp trade.

Wieland has logged just 85 1/3 innings since the beginning of 2012 due to elbow issues, but he'll enter spring training healthy. The Dodgers are set in their rotation for now, but Wieland will be among the top candidates to fill in once the inevitable Brett Anderson injury comes.

Padres and RHP Joe Wieland avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $590,000 contract.

The 24-year-old hurler was arbitration-eligible for the first time as a Super two qualifier. He fought his way back from a pair of elbow surgeries to return to the Padres in September, but logged just 11 1/3 unimpressive innings. He'll compete for a spot in the Padres rotation in the spring.

Joe Wieland will start on Wednesday against the Rockies in place of the injured Tyson Ross (forearm).

Wieland finally made it back this month after a pair of elbow surgeries but has struggled with a six runs and 13 hits allowed over six frames. His pitch count will be limited and he's not someone to consider in fantasy leagues.
Mon, Sep 22, 2014 06:47:00 PM

Joe Wieland gave up four runs in 2 1/3 innings against the Rockies in his return to the majors Saturday.

It was a long road back from July 2012 Tommy John surgery for Wieland, with a cleanup surgery this spring costing him much of 2014. The Padres will want to keep getting him work and building up his innings count, so he should make at least a couple of more starts this month. It doesn't look like he'll be an option in NL-only leagues, though.
