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.
Yimi Garcia said his right arm feels asleep from the top of the bicep all the way down to his wrist. Trying massage therapy. Down two days.— J.P. Hoornstra (@jphoornstra) April 23, 2016
Garcia did not undergo an MRI on his elbow. Dave Roberts said the medical staff determined he did not need one.— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughTimes) April 23, 2016
