Before Sunday's series finale at Turner Field in Atlanta, the Los Angeles Dodgers recalled relief pitcher Ramon Troncoso from Triple A Albuquerque. Troncoso gives the Dodgers 16 pitchers, and pushes the active roster to 29 players. More moves are expected in the upcoming week, as Triple A Albuquerque ends their season Monday. Double A Chattanooga will be in the Southern League playoffs, but a few pitchers might be recalled from that level as well.
This is Troncoso's third stint with the Dodgers this season. He has a 6.23 ERA with three walks and just seven strikeouts in 17 innings, though he showed marked improvement in his second call-up, with a 3.68 ERA in 10 appearances. Troncoso was 2-4 with a 5.05 ERA in 57 innings in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League this season.
Here are the starting lineups in the series finale with the Atlanta Braves:
