LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers called up relief pitcher Casey Fien from Triple-A Oklahoma City before Saturday's game against the Mets, taking the active roster spot of Julio Urias, who was optioned back to Triple-A one day after his major league debut.

To make room on the 40-man roster for Fien, outfelder James Ramsey was designated for assignment.

The Dodgers claimed Fien off waivers from the Twins on May 7, but then sent him outright to Triple-A on May 12, removing him from the 40-man roster.  Fien had a 5.87 ERA in six games with Oklahoma City, with nine strikeouts and two walks in 7⅔ innings, and one save.

Fien, 32,  last pitched on Thursday for Oklahoma City, throwing eight pitches while facing two batters.

Fien in the majors this season allowed 12 runs on 21 hits in 13 innings, including five home runs allowed, with 12 strikeouts and three walks in 14 games with Minnesota.

He will wear number 50 with the Dodgers.
