To make room on the 25-man roster, LA optioned RHP Dylan Floro to Triple-A and placed LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 10-day IL with neck soreness, retroactive to Aug. 1.
Ryu will make his second trip to the injured list this season after missing 11 games from April 9 through April 20 with a left groin strain. On the season, he’s 11-2 with a 1.53 ERA. He also has 117 strikeouts this season.
In the move, the Dodgers recalled Tony Gonsolin. This will be the third stint for the 25-year-old. His last appearance was in Denver this past week, where he recorded his first career save. He has pitched eight innings, allowing seven runs (five earned) with six strikeouts in his previous two stops with the Dodgers. With Triple-A Oklahoma City, he has made 12 starts, going 1-4 with a 4.95 ERA and 41 strikeouts.
The other notable move was the activation of Dustin May, who will make his first career start tonight. The corresponding move was optioning Dylan Floro to OKC. Floro was activated from the injured list on Wednesday afternoon and appeared in one game during his brief stint. On the season, Floro is 4-3 with a 4.00 ERA and has 30 strikeouts in 38 games this season.
Finally, the Dodgers moved Scott Alexander to the 60-day IL. He was placed on the IL on June 11 after appearing in 28 games and going 3-2 with a 3.36 ERA and nine strikeouts. There’s no timetable as to when he will return.
