On Tuesday, the Dodgers recalled LHP Caleb Ferguson from Triple-A Oklahoma City. In the move, they placed Scott Alexander on the injured list.

Ferguson spent the first two months with the Dodgers this season, but was optioned to OKC on May 27. Prior to his option, it had been a struggle for the first two months for the left-hander. On the season, he is 0-1 with a 5.94 ERA.

He seemed to have found a stride in the minors. Over the last two weeks, Ferguson has allowed zero runs and only two hits in six innings. He struck out 11, and had a WHIP of 0.67.

Alexander hits the IL with left forearm inflammation, retroactive to June 8.

On the year, Alexander is 3-2 with a 3.63 ERA. It’s been a struggle over the last six weeks for the lefty. Since April 24, Alexander has an ERA of 6.75, while opponents are hitting just under .300 against him. During this stretch, he has allowed 58 percent of inherited runners to score.
