The Dodgers on Tuesday afternoon reinstated left-handed pitcher Rich Hill from the 10-day disabled list and optioned right-handed pitcher Brock Stewart to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Hill had missed nearly three weeks due to complications resulting from a broken fingernail on his throwing hand.
The 38-year-old southpaw will make his fourth start of the season in Tuesday’s opener against the Diamondbacks and his first start since April 14, after missing the last 18 games. He has gone 1-1 with a 6.00 ERA (10 ER/15.0 IP) and has struck out 16 batters against seven walks in three starts this year.
Stewart, 26, last pitched on May 6 against the Padres in Monterrey, Mexico, where he gave up one hit in an inning of relief. In two relief appearances with the Dodgers this season, he has allowed one run in 2.2 innings (3.38 ERA) and has struck out three against one walk.
By far, Stewart has been the most traveled Dodger on the 25-man roster carousel so far this season.
