Dodgers recall Elian Herrera, option Chris Withrow to Triple-A

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Ultra-utility man Elian Herrera joins the Dodgers in San Diego and Chris Withrow relocates to Albuquerque.

Elian Herrera's time at Triple-A Albuquerque appears to be over for the time being, as he surprisingly showed up at Petco park Thursday. Meanwhile, the hard throwing reliever Chris Withrow got optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque. The Dodgers are back to 12 pitchers on roster.

Herrera hit .300 with five home runs, 28 RBI, 12 stolen bases, and posted an impressive .381 on base percentage for the Isotopes. After going up and down all last year, Herrera has only played one game for the Dodgers in 2013. Herrera's sole big league appearance was against the Arizona Diamondbacks on May 8th; and he went one-for-three, batted eighth, and played left field.

Withrow, the Dodgers first round pick in 2007, made three appearances for Don Mattingly and ended up with an ERA of 5.40. At the minor league level, Withrow has been excellent at 4-0 with an ERA of 1.93, and averaged 11.6 strikeouts per nine innings.
