Gavin Lux recalled by Dodgers, Caleb Ferguson starts Game 2

Lux called up as 29th man for doubleheader

MLB: Game Two-Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers try for a sweep of today’s doubleheader, with Caleb Ferguson starting what figures to be a bullpen game in the second game against the Giants, or at least an opener situation.

Caleb Ferguson vs. Kevin Gausman on the mound

Ferguson pitched 1⅓ innings and threw 16 pitches in Tuesday night’s game in this series.

If the Dodgers use Mitch White, who was recalled earlier Thursday, at any point in this game, he’ll be the third Dodger to make his major league debut in 2020, along with pitcher Victor Gonzalez and catcher Keibert Ruiz.

Kevin Gausman starts for San Francisco.

Gavin Lux is the Dodgers’ 29th player for the doubleheader, while outfielder Luis Basabe has the same role for the Giants.
