SAN DIEGO -- The Dodgers made official their activation of Hyun-Jin Ryu from the disabled list on Sunday before he is set to start the series finale against the Padres at Petco Park. To make room on the active roster for Ryu, the Dodgers optioned pitcher Carlos Frias to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Frias has a 5.65 ERA in eight relief appearances for the Dodgers this season, mostly in mop-up duty, with 10 strikeouts and two walks (one intentional) in 14⅓ innings. The 24-year-old sinkerballer made his major league debut on Aug. 4.
Frias, signed by the Dodgers as an amateur out of the Dominican Republic in 2007, was 10-5 with a 4.58 ERA in 21 games, including 20 starts, between Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Albuquerque, with 79 strikeouts and 30 walks in 123⅔ innings.
The option of Frias is really just a paper move, as Albuquerque's season ends on Monday. Frias will be eligible to return to the Dodgers by Tuesday.
