The Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday recalled catcher/infielder Kyle Farmer from Triple-A Oklahoma City and optioned right-handed pitcher Brock Stewart back to Oklahoma City.

The 26-year-old Farmer made his Major League debut on July 30, at which time he hit a walkoff double against the Giants at Dodger Stadium. The Atlanta native has appeared in 10 games with the Dodgers, batting .400 in 10 AB with a run, a double and two RBI. He is 4-for-9 (.444) as a pinch-hitter.

Stewart, 25, started Tuesday’s contest against the Pirates, and allowed five runs and four hits in only two full. In 11 appearances (three starts) this season, Stewart has posted a 3.38 ERA over an even 24 innings with one save while holding hitters to a .227 average.

With the move, the Dodgers still have 10 available arms in the bullpen, but increase the number of position players off the bench to four.
