GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers claimed right-handed pitcher J.T. Chargois off outright waivers from the Twins on Saturday and placed left-hander Julio Urias on the 60-day disabled list.

Urias is recovering from last year's shoulder capsule operation and is not expected to be game-ready until midseason. As far as he's concerned, the move is procedural to clear a roster spot and is unrelated to his recovery, which continues without a setback.

Chargois, 27, missed nearly all of the 2017 season with a right elbow stress reaction that did not require surgery. He pitched in 25 Major League games with Minnesota, all in 2016 out of the bullpen, going 1-1 with a 4.70 ERA. He was a second-round pick in the 2012 Draft from Rice University.
