LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers as expected recalled pitcher Joe Wieland from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start the third game of a four-game series against the Brewers in Milwaukee. To make room on the active roster, Daniel Coulombe was optioned back to Triple-A.

Wieland arrived in Milwaukee on Tuesday, and will be the ninth different starting pitcher used in 27 games by the Dodgers this season. He was 3-0 with a 3.60 ERA in four starts with Oklahoma City, with 22 strikeouts and two walks in 20 innings.

Coulombe was just recalled from Triple-A on Monday, giving the Dodgers nine relief pitchers for the first two games in Milwaukee. Coulombe pitched on Tuesday night, allowing a run in the ninth inning on one hit and one walk. That is his only major league appearance this season.

The lefty Coulombe had a 1.74 ERA and one save in eight appearances with Oklahoma City, with 16 strikeouts and four walks in 10⅓ innings.

With the moves, the Dodgers are still carrying 13 pitchers and 12 position players on their active roster.
