LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers on Saturday placed Yimi Garcia on the 15-day disabled list with right biceps soreness, one night after he left in the seventh inning, feeling something in his right arm.

Zach Lee was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City, presumably to be a long reliever if needed for these last two games in the pitching graveyard that is Coors Field. Though a starter, Lee was also used in this manner once in 2015, called up as the 26th man for one game in a pseudo-doubleheader on July 18 in Washington D.C., though Lee did not pitch.

Lee was originally scheduled to start on Saturday in Iowa for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

In three starts with OKC this season, Lee has a 1.56 ERA, wth 15 strikeouts and just one walk in 17⅓ innings.

Garcia, 25, is tied with Chris Hatcher for the team lead in appearances (nine) and bullpen innings (8⅓ innings), and has a 3.24 ERA with four strikeouts and a walk so far this season.
