Clayton Kershaw is off the disabled list and back on the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who made the move official this afternoon.

Cary Osborne caught us up on Kershaw this morning. Moments ago, Dave Roberts told reporters that the Dodgers will take things “inning to inning” tonight,” but that the schedule calls for Kershaw to make his next start on four days’ rest Wednesday at Yankee Stadium.

In between, the Dodgers will have Rich Hill and Kenta Maeda pitching against the Marlins, followed by rookies Jose De León and Julio Urías at New York.  The latter two will have had more than a week’s worth of rest.

Roberts added that he expected to see Urías in the bullpen in October.

To create room on the 40-man roster for Kershaw, the Dodgers recalled right-handed pitcher Carlos Frias from Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he has been on the disabled list since July 12, and placed him on the big-league 60-day DL.

In doing so, the Dodgers have broken the known record for most players on the DL in one year with 28.

The 26-year-old Frias, who had a 3.95 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 43 1/3 minor-league innings this year, pitched in one game for the Dodgers in 2016, throwing four shutout innings July 7 against the Padres. He is tied for 14th all-time for the Dodgers in innings pitched with a single-season ERA of 0.00.

Dodgers bring up Andrew Toles, option Carlos Frias

Toles 592808By Jon Weisman

Carlos Frias did his job with four innings of shutout relief, but with the All-Star Break coming in three days, his presence on the Dodgers’ active roster is not required.

So Frias has been optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City, and replaced on the big-league roster by outfielder Andrew Toles.

In addition, Los Angeles acquired 21-year-old right-handed pitcher Alec Grosser as the player to be named later to complete the Bud Norris trade.

The Dodgers designated Cole Figueroa for assignment to create a spot on the 40-man roster for Toles, a 5-foot-10 left-handed hitter.

Toles, 24, was signed to a minor-league contract in September, after he missed the 2015 season, as Barry Lewis of the Tulsa World notes. A third-round draft pick in 2012 by Tampa Bay (when Andrew Friedman was running the show there), he has played at three levels for the Dodgers this year, most recently posting a .333 on-base percentage and .485 slugging percentage in 36 plate appearances for Oklahoma City.

Hyun-Jin Ryu struggles in return

Image-1[38]

By Jon Weisman

The question with Hyun-Jin Ryu tonight, or at least one of the big ones after he spent more than a year recovering from shoulder surgery, was about the effectiveness of his fastball.

The San Diego Padres didn’t have much trouble answering it, knocking eight hits and scoring six runs over 4 2/3 innings, the length of Ryu’s first big-league appearance since the 2014 playoffs, in a 6-0 victory.

As presaged three days ago, Hyun-Jin Ryu has officially been activated by the Dodgers, who also promoted Carlos Frias from Triple-A Oklahoma City to support their heavily used bullpen.

To make room on the roster for the two right-handers, the Dodgers have designated outfielder Will Venable for assignment and will send reliever Luis Avilan to Oklahoma City.

Yasiel Puig activated from DL, Carlos Frias optioned

As expected, the Dodgers activated Yasiel Puig from the disabled list today, with right-hander Carlos Frias returning to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Puig went 5 for 12 with a homer in five rehab games with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga last week. He and his strained left hamstring went on the disabled list June 3 with a .283 on-base percentage and .360 slugging percentage this year.

Frias did not appear in either game for which he was eligible following his Sunday promotion. The move makes it likely that Kenta Maeda will start Friday at Pittsburgh for the Dodgers on four days’ rest, followed by Clayton Kershaw and Scott Kazmir.

Carlos Frias has been called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City to bring a fresh arm to a tired Dodger pitching staff, with Mike Bolsinger being optioned down.

This move materialized as a likely possibility when Frias didn’t make a scheduled long-relief appearance Saturday, shortly before Bolsinger struggled to get seven outs.

Frias presumably could take Bolsinger’s turn in the rotation, but could be needed out of the bullpen first. In the past seven days, Dodger relievers have needed to face 96 batters, an average of 13.7 per day. The Dodgers have an off day Thursday, when Bolsinger was next scheduled to start.

Farm Fresh: Super Tuesday in Dodger minors


By Joshua Gurnick

It’s still early Wednesday afternoon, but there’s news. Pitcher Josh Sborz and outfielder Kyle Garlick were named Single-A California League All-Stars.

  • Sborz is 5-3 with a 2.84 ERA in 11 starts this year with Rancho Cucamonga, limiting opponents to a .219 batting average with a 1.01 WHIP. The 22-year-old is in his second professional season after being selected a year ago in the draft out of Virginia.
  • Garlick, who was promoted to Double-A Tulsa on May 31, batted .306 with 14 doubles, 11 home runs and 37 RBI in 49 games with Rancho. The 24-year-old was selected in the 28th round of the 2015 draft out of Cal Poly Pomona.

Meanwhile, Tuesday was eventful in the Dodger farm system. Here are brief notes on some of the standouts …
