The Dodgers made a transaction today when they recalled right-handed pitcher Dennis Santana from Oklahoma City. Santana had not made his first appearance yet in Oklahoma City’s first three games.
The corresponding move was optioning right-handed pitcher Brock Stewart to Oklahoma City. Stewart had made three appearances for Los Angeles, all when the Dodgers had large leads.
His last game pitched was on Friday when Stewart faced five batters and retired two of them. He gave up three runs and three hits.
Santana made his major league debut on June 1, 2018 at Coors Field. He was the second pitcher used that day and despite giving up five runs in 3⅔ innings pitched, he did get credit for his first major league win.
On June 8, 2018, Santana was placed on the 10-day disabled list for right rotator cuff strain, he was then transferred to the 60-day disabled list and he did not pitch again in 2018.
During this past spring training, Santana made four appearances. In 8⅔ innings pitched, he allowed eight runs and seven hits, including three home runs. He also walked six and struck out 14.
