Jose Dominguez joins Dodgers bullpen, Peter Moylan optioned

Eric Stephen | True Blue LA

Dominguez struck out 40 in 25 1/3 innings in Double-A and Triple-A combined this season.

The Dodgers added some firepower to their bullpen on Saturday, as they have purchased the contract of 100-mph man Jose Dominguez from Triple-A Albuquerque before their game against the Phillies on Saturday night. Dominquez will be the 22nd Dodger to throw a pitch this season.

Peter Moylan, who threw 39 pitches while allowing five runs in Friday night's 16-1 loss to Philadelphia, was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque. Moylan had allowed eight runs and 12 baserunners over 5⅓ innings in his last three appearances.

Dominguez, one of the many pitchers in spring training to receive one-on-one instruction from Sandy Koufax, began his season serving a 25-game suspension for violation of the minor league drug prevention program. But once he hit the mound Dominguez was lights out.

The 22-year-old from San Pedro de Macoris was 1-0 with a 2.60 ERA and five saves in 14 games with Double-A Chattanooga, with 28 strikeouts and eight walks in 17⅓ innings. After promotion to Triple-A Albuquerque, Dominguez had eight scoreless appearances, with 12 strikeouts and five walks in eight innings in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League.
