LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers on Tuesday added three more players to their September roster, recalling pitcher Carlos Frias and infielder Miguel Rojas from Triple-A Albuquerque and infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena from Class-A Rancho Cucamonga.

All three had to wait until Tuesday to be recalled, after their respective minor league seasons ended. Arrubarrena was optioned on Aug. 24, while Frias and Rojas were jettisoned to the minors, on paper only, on Sunday.

Frias, 24, will make his first major league start on Wednesday afternoon in the series finale against Washington. His first eight major league appearances - all in August - came in relief, putting up a 5.65 ERA with 10 strikeouts and two walks in 14⅓ innings.

Arruebarrena, in the first year of a five-year, $25 million deal, is 7-for-28 (.250) with a double and three walks in his 12 major league games. His time in the field has been exclusively at shortstop, including eight starts.

Rojas is hitting .195/.259/.242 in 64 games. He has played 48 games at shortstop, including 24 starts, plus 12 games (nine starts) at third base, three games (two starts) at second base, and two innings in left field.

The Dodgers now have 33 players on their active roster.
