The Dodgers needed to make a roster move in order to activate Walker Buehler from the 10-day disabled list. Switch-pitcher Pat Venditte was that move, ending his fifth stint with the Dodgers this year.
Venditte didn’t make an appearance this time around while on the roster, having last pitched back on June 8. In five games for the Dodgers this year, Venditte has given up four runs and eight hits over 4 1⁄3 innings.
Buehler comes off the DL to join a temporary six-man rotation that will carry through the first three weeks after the All-Star break. The almost 24-year-old is 2-1 with a 1.48 ERA in five starts at Dodger Stadium this year, allowing five runs in 30 1⁄3 innings and striking out 31 while walking only three.
