Dodgers Place Kendrick on DL, Recall Peraza
LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed infielder Howie Kendrick on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring and recalled infielder Jose Peraza (#18) from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Peraza, 21, will be making his Major League debut after being acquired from the Braves as part of an eight-player trade on July 30. In 106 combined games with Atlanta's Triple-A Gwinnett and Triple-A Oklahoma City, Peraza has hit .302 with 27 stolen bases, four homers and 41 RBI, including a .385 mark (15-for-39) with a homer and four RBI in 10 games with the OKC Dodgers. Entering the 2015 season, he was rated by Baseball America as the No. 54 overall prospect in baseball after earning selections as a MiLB.com Atlanta organization All-Star in 2013-14 and to the MLB All-Star Futures Game in 2014, when he ranked third among all minor leaguers with 60 steals. He was originally signed by the Braves in 2010 as a free agent out of Venezuela.
Kendrick has hit .296 with nine home runs and 49 RBI in 105 games with the Dodgers this year.
