Dodgers add four pitchers to Arizona Fall League roster.

According to the Arizona Fall League’s Twitter account, the Dodgers added pitchers Onelki Garcia, Mike Thomas, Yimi Garcia and Shawn Tolleson to their AFL roster.

The Dodgers announced their preliminary AFL roster on Aug. 27, including four “pitchers to be named later.” The AFL begins play on Oct. 8, so today’s announcement has no bearing on Garcia’s current status with the Dodgers. Garcia has appeared in two games since being recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sept. 11.

Manager Don Mattingly said at the time that Garcia didn’t figure to make the Dodgers’ postseason roster.

Tolleson is recovering from back surgery and a torn muscle and has only appeared in one game this season.

Thomas, a left-handed reliever, and Garcia, a right-handed reliever, both finished the season at Double-A Chattanooga.
