LOS ANGELES — The revolving door in the Dodgers bullpen continued on Wednesday, with the team recalling Brandon Morrow from Triple-A Oklahoma City before the third game of a four-game series against the Mets.

Morrow takes the spot of Brock Stewart, who was optioned to Oklahoma City one day after recording a three-inning save, the first of his career. Stewart threw 40 pitches in three scoreless innings, allowing only a walk and a hit by pitch while striking out four.

But with the extended outing, Stewart was likely unavailable for a few days. Calling up Morrow gives the bullpen a fresh arm, with Kenta Maeda likely to resume long man duties after his five-inning outing on Sunday.

Morrow last pitched Monday for Oklahoma City, throwing 20 pitches in a scoreless inning.

In five major league appearances with the Dodgers this season, Morrow was 2-0 with six scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and a walk, with seven strikeouts.
