OAKLAND -- All seven Dodgers affiliates lost on Tuesday, but few performances stood out.

Player of the day

Jose De Leon started for Double-A Tulsa and struck out seven in his four innings, allowing only a single and a walk. Since returning from the disabled list on Aug. 6, De Leon has pitched nine innings, allowing one run on four hits, with one walk and 14 strikeouts.

On the season between Class-A Rancho Cucmonga and Double-A Tulsa, the right-hander has 146 strikeouts and 34 walks in 103 innings.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City fell 3-2 to the Tacoma Rainiers (Mariners) on Tuesday, with Zach Lee taking the loss in his quality start, allowing three runs in six innings with five strikeouts and a walk.

Austin Barnes went 3-for-4 with a double, Jose Peraza went 1-for-4 with two steals and a run scored, and Corey Seager went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers got superb pitching, matching a season high with 19 strikeouts, but lost 5-3 in 14 innings to the Frisco RoughRiders (Rangers). Jharel Cotton followed De Leon with seven strikeouts of his own, allowing two runs on five hits in six innings, with a walk.

Ronald Torreyes went 3-for-5 with a RBI in defeat. Designated pinch runner Robbie Garvey was caught stealing, and is down to just a 60-percent success rate in stealing bases (nine steals, six times caught) with Tulsa.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

Pablo Fernandez allowed four runs and nine hits in five innings, taking the loss as the Quakes fell 4-0 to the High Desert Mavericks (Rangers). Fernandez struck out two and walked one in defeat.

Dodgers fourth-round pick Willie Calhoun was promoted to Rancho Cucamonga and the second baseman collected two hits, including a double, and a walk in his first game in the Cal League.

Low Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons were held to just three hits in a 7-1 loss to the West Michigan Whitecaps (Tigers). Southpaw starter Michael Boyle, drafted by the Dodgers in the 13th round this year, allowed four runs in 4⅔ innings in his Great Lakes debut to take the loss, with three strikeouts and two walks.

Rookie-level Ogden

The Raptors allowed 17 hits and had five walks in a 13-7 loss to the Helena Brewers. In defeat, outfielder Gage Green was 2-for-4 with a double, as was designated hitter Scott De Jong.


Double-A: The Drillers activated third baseman Daniel Mayora and pitcher Ryan Dennick from the disabled list. Eric Stults was placed on the temporarily inactive list, and infielder Nate Samson was sent down to Rancho Cucamonga.

Class-A: Calhoun was promoted from Great Lakes to Rancho Cucamonga; the Quakes placed infielders Tim Locastro and Dillon Moyer on the seven-day disabled list. Jordan Tarsovich, drafted by the Dodgers this year in the 22nd round, was promoted from rookie-level Ogden to Great Lakes.

Injury update

Dodgers third-round pick Phil Pfeifer hasn't pitched since his professional debut on July 24, out with elbow soreness. But general manager Farhan Zaidi said there haven't been any tests run on Pfeifer, who will likely resume throwing soon.

"There hasn't been any diagnosis. He's just been shut down," Zaidi said. "He's going to start a throwing program, but he'll probably run out of time [in the minor league regular season]."
