The Dodgers on Tuesday afternoon recalled left-handed reliever Edward Paredes from Triple-A Oklahoma City and optioned right-handed pitcher Brock Stewart back to OKC.

Paredes, 31, has made nine relief appearances with the OKC Dodgers this season going 1-2 with one save and posting a 1.86 ERA (2 ER/9.2 IP), while limiting the opposition to a .229 average. The southpaw from the Dominican Republic saw his first career big league action last season with the Dodgers, going 1-0 with a 3.24 ERA (3 ER/8.1 IP) and striking out 11 batters without issuing a walk in 10 relief appearances over two stints with the club. Paredes, who is in his second season with the Dodger organization and his 10th overall professional campaign, was originally signed as a non-drafted free agent by the Seattle Mariners on May 12, 2005.

Stewart, 26, made his 2018 debut last night against the Diamondbacks, allowing one run (a home run) on three hits in 1.2 innings of relief with three strikeouts.

Here’s the way Tuesday’s lineup stacks up in Arizona:

  1. Taylor SS
  2. Pederson CF
  3. Grandal C
  4. Bellinger 1B
  5. Kemp RF
  6. Utley 2B
  7. Verdugo LF
  8. Muncy 3B
  9. Kershaw P

  1. I like hitting Joc second tonight. He deserves it based on recent performance and, let’s face it, who else fits any better right now. Going on record – we’ll score at least 7 runs tonight. Not saying the D’backs won’t score 8, but we have to win another game one of these days and I have a feeling this might just be the day.


    1. Considering how often he punches out, I don’t like Joc in the two-hole. That being said, watch him go out there and have a career night. Heaven knows Kersh could use the run support.


      1. Stewart – I’ve wasted a lot of shoe leather jumping up and down about that one.
        Joc – this ain’t the same Joc we’re used to seeing. Admitted sss, but…………………………79 plate appearances, 11 strike outs, 11 walks, .394 OBP. That Joc Pederson is an asset in the 2 hole, but of course we don’t know how long we’ll have that Joc. Hopefully all season.
