Morrow was called up from the minors on May 29 and appeared in five games for the Dodgers. He pitched six scoreless innings, allowing two hits and a walk, with seven strikeouts.

Wood missed a total of two starts while on the disabled list with SC joint inflammation in his left shoulder.

Justin Turner is out of the starting lineup in his second day back off the disabled list, with the Dodgers easing him back after missing 19 games with a right hamstring strain.
