The Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday activated right-handed pitcher John Axford from the 10-day disabled list and left-handed pitcher Tony Cingrani from the 60-day disabled list, and recalled right-handed pitcher Yimi Garcia from Single-A Rancho Cucamonga.
Axford has been on the disabled list since August 14, missing 30 games due to a fractured right fibula. Since being acquired from the Blue Jays on July 31, the 35-year-old has appeared in three games with Los Angeles, allowing six runs over 3 1⁄3 innings while striking out four.
Cingrani, who missed the last 89 games with a left shoulder strain, posted a 4.84 ERA in 28 relief appearances with the Dodgers this season while striking out 36 hitters in 22 1⁄3 innings.
Fresh off his stint with High-A Rancho Cucamonga where he pitched in the Cal League playoffs, Garcia makes his way back to the team for the third time this season. The 28-year-old owns a 5.57 ERA in 22 relief appearances this season, allowing 17 runs (13 earned) while striking out 17 against three walks.
To make room on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers transferred right-handed pitcher Daniel Hudson to the 60-day disabled list (right forearm tightness).
Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler will be closing out the series with the Rockies on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Dodgers will also close the regular season home schedule this weekend with the Padres. There will be several bobbleheads this week, so make sure you get your tickets right here from our friends over at StubHub.
