LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers as expected activated Brandon Beachy from the 60-day disabled list on Saturday to start against the Brewers in the second game of a three-game weekend series at Dodger Stadium. To make room on the active roster, the Dodgers optioned relief pitcher Josh Ravin to Triple-A Oklahoma City. To make room on the 40-man roster, the club designated pitcher Matt West for assignment.
Beachy, on the mend from his second Tommy John surgery, will pitch in a major league game for the first time since Aug. 20, 2013.
Ravin was told on Friday night that he was optioned, three games after rejoining the team. The 27-year-old Chatsworth native didn't see any game action during his second stint in the big leagues this season, but so far in 2015 is 2-1 with a 6.43 ERA in seven games, allowing five runs on 11 hits in seven innings, with nine strikeouts and a walk.
Ravin is 3-0 with a 1.96 ERA and three saves in 17 games this season for Triple-A Oklahoma City, with 34 strikeouts and nine walks in 23 innings.
West was acquired from the Blue Jays on May 4 for cash considerations and has been up with the Dodgers in two separate stints this season, pitching three scoreless innings in his two appearances, with two strikeouts and a walk.
In 11 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City, West ws 1-1 with a 7.20 ERA, with 14 strikeouts and five walks in 20 innings.
The Dodgers will have 10 days to figure out what to do with West. Should the 26-year-old clear waivers, he could be sent outright back to Triple-A.
