PITTSBURGH — The Dodgers will recall pitcher Brock Stewart from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start Wednesday’s game in Milwaukee. Stewart, 24, will be making his major league debut.
The promotion will be Stewart’s third in less than three months.
A sixth-round draft pick out of Illinois State University in 2014, Stewart began the season at Single-A Rancho Cucamonga. After making two starts in which he allowed only one run, Stewart was promoted to Double-A Tulsa, where he posted a 1.12 ERA in nine starts.
Stewart was 3-0 with a 2.89 ERA in three starts at Triple-A Oklahoma City.
I'm so incredibly fortunate to say that the dreams I've had since I was a young boy have come true. I got the call!!
