Dodgers Will Have Second Bullpen Southpaw To Deal With In Bastardo

Dodgers left-handers Andre Ethier and James Loney, and perhaps Jay Gibbons, will have a second left-hander, aside from J.C. Romero, to deal with in the Phillies bullpen, reported Todd Zolecki of MLB.com:

The Phillies will recall left-hander Antonio Bastardo before tonight’s game against the Dodgers, a source said.

Ethier is hitting .232 against left-handers this season with a .279 on-base percentage and a .339 slugging percentage. Loney is hitting .226 against southpaws with a .265 on-base percentage and .323 slugging percentage.
