The Dodgers recalled left-handed pitcher Luis Avilan from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to Monday’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. There are 32 players on the Dodgers’ active roster.

Avilan was last seen pitching the eighth inning of the Dodgers’ 10-8 win over the Colorado Rockies last Wednesday in Denver. He flew in from Oklahoma that morning as the Dodgers’ 26th man for the second game of a doubleheader, then earned his first win when Andrew Toles hit a grand slam to complete a ninth-inning comeback.

Avilan has been recalled from the minor leagues six separate times this season. He has a 5.40 ERA in 17 appearances this season.
