Dodgers Place Pedro Baez On Disabled List, Recall Daniel Coulombe
LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed right-handed pitcher Pedro Baez on the 15-day disabled list (right pectoral strain) and recalled left-handed pitcher Daniel Coulombe from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Coulombe, 25, made his only big league appearance of the season on May 5 at Milwaukee and has posted a 1.59 ERA (2 ER/11.1 IP) in nine games with Oklahoma City this year, including seven consecutive scoreless appearances since April 15 (9.0 IP). Coulombe saw his first Major League action last year, appearing in five games with the Dodgers as a September call-up, and was selected by the Dodgers in the 25th round of the 2012 First-Year Player Draft out of Texas Tech University.
Baez has gone 1-0 with a 1.76 ERA in 15 appearances this year, including tossing scoreless relief in his last eight games (8.1 IP) since April 24.
