Mike Bolsinger leaves early, Jose Peraza keeps hitting for OKC

The Dodgers continued to get production from middle infielders on the 40-man roster, but sixth starter Mike Bolsinger left early with an apparent injury.

Player of the day

Jose Peraza started at shortstop for a second straight game, and went 3-for-5 with a double while batting leadoff for Triple-A Oklahoma City. In five games with OKC since getting acquired by the Dodgers, the 21-year-old middle infielder is 9-for-18 with two doubles, a home run and a walk.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

In his first outing since getting the tough-luck trip to the minors, Bolsinger was struck in the arm by a line drive in the second inning off the bat of Jhonatan Solano. Though Bolsinger stayed in and faced nine more batters, he eventually left the game with nobody out in the fourth inning of OKC's 7-3 loss to the New Orleans Zephyrs (Marlins), as a result of the earlier line drive.

Corey Seager started at third base in consecutive games for the first time all season, with Peraza at shortstop. Seager was 1-for-3 with a walk.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers pounded out 12 hits in a 9-4 win over the Springfield Cardinals. In the fifth inning, Lars Anderson and Kyle Farmer had back-to-back doubles. Erisbel Arruebarrena was 3-for-5 with two runs scored, and Eric Stults allowed two runs in five innings for the win.

Ronald Torreyes was 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored, his 16th hit in 47 games with the Drillers. The 22-year-old second baseman, acquired on June 12, was 21-for-120 (.175) with five walks in the minors this season when the Dodgers picked him up. But he is hitting .298/.350/.431 for Tulsa.

Pinch runner extraordinaire Robbie Garvey did his thing in the sixth inning, stealing second base then scoring from second on a single by Torreyes. Garvey is 7-for-9 in stolen base attempts in 10 games with the Drillers.

Caleb Dirks struck out two in a scoreless eighth inning in his second game with Tulsa. Since getting acquired for an international bonus pool slot, Dirks in the Dodgers system has allowed one run in 12 innings, with 20 strikeouts and two walks.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

Jon Richy and Joe Broussard combined to allow three home runs in the Quakes' 8-5 loss to the High Desert Mavericks (Rangers). Brandon Dixon was 2-for-3 with a triple in defeat, and Johan Mieses homered and drove in two runs.

Low Class-A Great Lakes

Josh Sborz, the Dodgers' No. 74 overall pick (competitive balance pick in between the second and third rounds), made his Loons debut and struck out five in three innings, but also allowed a pair of solo home runs and got stuck with the loss in Great Lakes' 2-0 loss to the Beloit Snappers (Athletics).

[Recap]

Rookie-level Ogden

The Raptors were off, but had Nick Sell and Matt Jones share left field duties in the Pioneer League vs. Northwest League All-Star Game on Tuesday night. Sell started and went 0-for-2, playing the first five innings in left field. Jones played the rest of the game in left, and went 0-for-2.

Dominican Summer League

The DSL Dodgers lost 7-2 to the DSL Reds, but starter Johan Diaz had a good start. The 22-year-old right-hander struck out eight in six innings, allowing two runs. After 20 strikeouts and three walks in 22 innings in relief this season, Diaz in three starts has 22 strikeouts and five walks in 17⅓ innings.

Transactions

Triple-A: Bolsinger and Austin Barnes were added to the OKC roster; Brandon Beachy was placed on the temporary inactive list (he's still listed as the scheduled starter on Saturday).

Double-A: Jairo Heredia was placed on the temporary inactive list.

Class-A: Webster Rivas was sent back to the Quakes from OKC; pitcher Scott Barlow was promoted from Great Lakes to Rancho Cucamonga; pitcher Trevor Oaks was activated by the Loons off the DL; infielder Dillon Moyer and outfielders Kyle Hudson and Brian Wolfe were placed on the DL by the Quakes.

The most intriguing move was outfielder Edwin Drexler, the Dodgers' 38th-round pick out of Grambling, promoted to Rancho Cucamonga from the Arizona League. He has been used exclusively as a pinch runner, stealing eight bases in eight attempts for the AZL Dodgers, scoring five runs in seven games.

Drexler made his Cal League debut in the sixth inning on Tuesday, pinch running for Brandon Dixon, but he was thrown out trying to steal second base.
