Dodgers recall Chris Withrow, DFA Matt Guerrier

USA TODAY Sports

Guerrier is removed from the 40-man roster immediately, and the Dodgers have 10 days to either trade or release the right-hander.

The Dodgers continued their weekend bullpen renovation on Sunday, as veteran right-hander Matt Guerrier was designated for assignment and Chris Withrow was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque before their finale with the Phillies.

Sunday was the first day Withrow could return without someone going on the disabled list, as he was optioned on June 20. He allowed two runs in 3... innings in three games in his first stint in the big leagues, though manager Don Mattingly showed trust in the former first-round pick, pitching him twice with a lead in late inning situations in his first two games.

Withrow, 24, was converted from starting to relieving late in 2012 and the move has paid off. He has a 1.78 ERA in 24 games with Triple-A Albuquerque this season, with 32 strikeouts and 12 walks in 25... innings.

The move is the second in two days for the Dodgers bullpen, which has found an infusion of youth. Withrow, 24, and 22-year-old Jose Dominguez, added Friday, join 25-year-old closer Kenley Jansen and 22-year-old setup man Paco Rodriguez in the bullpen.

Guerrier was 2-3 with a 4.80 ERA in 34 games this season, with 21 strikeouts and 12 walks. Guerrier is in the final season of a three-year, $12 million deal. With a $3.75 million salary this season, Guerrier has roughly $1.8 million remaining, meaning it's highly unlikely the 34-year-old gets claimed on waivers.

Guerrier allowed runs in four of his last five outings, including allowing five runs while recording four outs in his last two appearances combined.

The Dodgers now have 39 players on their 40-man roster, excluding those on the 60-day disabled list.
