LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday reinstated right-handed pitcher John Axford from the 10-day disabled list and left-handed pitcher Tony Cingrani from the 60-day disabled list, and recalled right-handed pitcher Yimi Garcia from Single-A Rancho Cucamonga.
Axford, 35, has been on the disabled list since August 14, missing 30 games due to a fractured right fibula. Since being acquired from the Blue Jays on July 31, the Ontario, Canada native has appeared in three games with Los Angeles, allowing six runs over 3.1 innings and striking out four.
Cingrani, who missed 89 games with a left shoulder strain, has posted a 1-2 record and 4.84 ERA (12 ER/22.1 IP) in 28 relief appearances with the Dodgers.
Garcia, 28, will make his second stint with the big club after posting a 1-2 record with a 5.57 ERA (13 ER/21.0 IP) and striking out 17 against three walks in 22 relief appearances with Los Angeles this season.
To make room on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers transferred right-handed pitcher Daniel Hudson to the 60-day disabled list (right forearm tightness).
