LOS ANGELES — Among the roster moves made by the Dodgers on Wednesday was recalling outfielder Brett Eibner from Triple-A Oklahoma City, and he gets the start in center field on Wednesday night against the Rockies.

Rob Segedin was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right big toe strain. He was just recalled on Monday, and was 1-for-4 with two strikeouts and a run scored in two games, including one start.

Eibner was off to a hot start in Triple-A, hitting .344/.389/.656 with three home runs, eight RBI, and eight runs scored in 12 games. The Dodgers acquired Eibner from the Athletics on Jan. 25 for minor league infielder Jordan Tarsovich.

With Oklahoma City, Eibner started five games in right field, and once each in center field, left field, and designated hitter.

The Dodgers also have Chris Taylor in the lineup at second base on the day he was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City, with left-hander Tyler Anderson on the mound.

Going forward, manager Dave Roberts said Chase Utley would start at second base against right-handed pitching, per David Vassegh of 570 AM.

In addition, Justin Turner sits on Wednesday at least at the start, after getting hit by a pitch on his left hand on Tuesday. Kiké Hernandez gets the start at third base.

With all the lineup changes, Yasiel Puig is batting third, his fifth different position in the batting order this season. He has made at least three starts batting fourth, fifth, seventh, and eighth in 2017.
