At one point this week, Carlos Frias was scheduled to start for Triple-A Oklahoma today. Instead he has a locker in the home clubhouse at Dodger Stadium after being recalled by the Dodgers on Wednesday.
His return was announced shortly after the Dodgers announced they had designated pitcher David Huff for assignment and claimed left-handed pitcher Ryan Dennick off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds.
The Dodgers have 10 days to place Huff on waivers, trade him, release him, or outright him to the minor leagues. Dennick is now on the 40-man roster and will report to Double-A Tulsa.
Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig is not in the starting lineup against the Seattle Mariners for the second straight day because of a strained left hamstring. He is not taking part in the usual pregame routine for position players and seems likely to miss a second consecutive game.
