The Los Angeles Dodgers promoted left-handed pitching prospect Justin Wrobleski on Sunday, shortly on the heels of trading righty Matt Gage to the New York Mets.

Wrobleski, a fast-rising prospect in the Dodgers organization, is slated to make his major league debut Sunday in a start against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Gage, 31, was traded to the Mets for cash considerations. Over 16 career major league appearances, he has amassed a 1.83 ERA with 20 strikeouts against nine walks. All of his appearances have come for the Toronto Blue Jays (2022) and Houston Astros (2023).

Wrobleski, 23, was considered the top left-handed pitching prospect in the organization by multiple outlets, having been promoted to Double-A Tulsa earlier this spring. He went 5-2 at Tulsa with a 3.06 ERA with 62 strikeouts and 13 walks in 13 starts.

The Dodgers optioned right-hander Gus Varland to make room for the young pitcher. Varland, 27, is 1-1 in his career in 23 appearances with a 5.81 ERA.
