LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers made another September call-up on Wednesday, with outfielder Scott Schebler recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City before the series finale against the Giants.

The 24-year-old left-hander hit .241/.322/.410 with 13 home runs, 16 doubles and nine triples in 121 games in Oklahoma City. He made one appearance with the Dodgers this season, up for one day, getting a start on June 5. He was 1-for-3 with a strikeout.

Schebler is the only left-handed batter listed as a reserve on Wednesday's lineup card, the first of at least five straight games facing a right-handed starting pitcher.

"He can pinch hit, he can play all the outfield spots," manager Don Mattingly said. "He gives us some flexibility."

Schebler made his way to Los Angeles and arrived before the game. He will wear No. 30, after wearing No. 55 earlier in the season.

With Schebler, the Dodgers will have 31 players on the active roster, including 16 pitchers.

The Dodgers have six left-handed batters, two switch hitters and Justin Turner in their lineup against Mike Leake on Wednesday. Leake this season has held right-handed batters to hitting .211/.263/.327, while left-handers are hitting .261/.306/.414 against him.
