Ravin was on the lineup card earlier in the day, but the move was officially announced about 30 minutes before the first pitch of Saturday's game.

Ravin has a 6.43 ERA in seven appearances this season with the Dodgers and had allowed four runs in his last 1 2/3 innings with the club.

West has yet to make an appearance with the Dodgers in the Majors but appeared in three games with Texas last season.
