The Dodgers recalled Charlie Culberson from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday. Culberson actually flew in last night from New Orleans, but the transaction isn’t official yet because the Dodgers haven’t determined a corresponding move.
Culberson has appeared in 16 games for the Dodgers this season, collecting eight hits in 30 at-bats (.267). At Triple-A, he’s slashing .260/.310/.385 with four home runs and 33 RBIs in 70 games. He is batting eighth and playing second base today against the San Francisco Giants.
Culberson has faced Giants starter Madison Bumgarner more than any other pitcher in his career. In 15 plate appearances, he’s slashing .286/.333/.429 with four RBIs. He doesn’t have more than seven plate appearances against anyone else in his career.
