The Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday afternoon reinstated left-handed pitcher Grant Dayton from the 10-day disabled list and designated right-handed pitcher Sergio Romo for assignment.

Dayton, who missed 11 games due to neck stiffness, last pitched on Monday with High-A Rancho Cucamonga, tossing one scoreless inning with one strikeout. In two rehab appearances with the Quakes and the Arizona League Dodgers, he pitched an even two scoreless frames with three strikeouts against one walk. In 27 relief appearances with the big league squad this season, he has gone 1-1 with a 3.63 ERA over 22-1/3 innings, and has struck out 20 batters against 12 walks, while holding batters to a .171 average.

Romo, who made 30 relief appearances with the Dodgers this season, went 1-1 with a 6.12 ERA over 25 innings pitched with 31 strikeouts against 12 walks.

With the move, the Dodgers created one opening on the club’s 40-man roster.
