Coleman, Liberatore head to DL, Toles optioned — Urías, Fields and Stewart recalled
By Jon Weisman
A flurry of moves have been made by the Dodgers before tonight’s game in Colorado.
Louis Coleman (right shoulder fatigue) and Adam Liberatore (left elbow inflammation) have been placed on the disabled list. For Liberatore, the transaction is retroactive to July 30.
Joining the Dodgers from Triple-A Oklahoma City are pitchers Julio Urías and newly acquired Josh Fields. In addition, outfielder Andrew Toles has been optioned to Oklahoma City to make room for tonight’s starting pitcher, Brock Stewart.

Finally, right-handed pitcher Josh Ravin was reinstated from the restricted list and optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Coleman and Liberatore give the Dodger a full 25-man roster of players who have been on their disabled list in 2016. The Dodger bench for tonight’s game is Yasmani Grandal, Chase Utley, Josh Reddick and Chris Taylor.
Since his franchise-record streak of 28 straight scoreless appearances from May 20 through July 22 ended, Liberatore has faced five batters over two games and been charged with four runs.
Coleman hasn’t allowed a run or inherited run in six games since July 21, striking out five in 4 2/3 innings, though there have been seven baserunners. He has a 3.70 ERA this season.
