LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers on Monday made a bullpen swap, recalling Yimi Garcia and optioning Edward Paredes to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Garcia has a 7.71 ERA in his five major league appearances this season, allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits in 4 innings, with three strikeouts and a walk. This is his third stint with the Dodgers this season.

In 12 games in Triple-A in 2018 Garcia has a 3.55 ERA with 12 strikeouts and no walks in 12⅔ innings. He last pitched on Friday, tossing a perfect inning on just eight pitches.

Paredes was up for four games last week and didn’t pitch in any of them, though it helped that three of the last four Dodgers starters lasted at least 6⅔ innings.

It was the second stint this season in the majors for Paredes, who has appeared in one game this season, retiring two of his three hitters faced and hitting the other.

The move swaps a left-hander for a right-hander in the pen, leaving the Dodgers with two southpaws available in relief — Tony Cingrani and Scott Alexander.
