Dodgers Recall Joe Weiland, Select Contract of Justin Ruggiano

LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today recalled right-handed pitcher Joe Wieland (#45) from Triple-A Oklahoma City and selected the contract of outfielder Justin Ruggiano (#27) after acquiring him last night with considerations from Seattle in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. To create room on the 40-man roster, Los Angeles recalled right-handed pitcher Josh Ravin from Triple-A Oklahoma City and placed him on the 60-day disabled list (left hernia).

In previously announced moves, the club also recalled right-handed pitcher Mike Bolsinger and left-handed pitcher Ian Thomas from Triple-A Oklahoma City and reinstated reliever Joel Peralta from the 15-day disabled list (right neck sprain).

Wieland made one start for the Dodgers, taking the loss on May 6 at Milwaukee, and went 10-5 with a 4.59 ERA in 22 games (21 starts) with Triple-A Oklahoma City this year. The 25-year-old has appeared in 10 career big league games (eight starts) with the Dodgers and Padres (2012, 2014), going 1-5 with a 5.98 ERA. He was acquired by Los Angeles from San Diego in a five-player trade on Dec. 18, 2014, which also netted the Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal.

Ruggiano, 33, batted .296 with a .385 on-base percentage, 10 home runs and 29 RBI in 49 games with the Mariners' Triple-A Tacoma this year and appeared in 36 big league games with Seattle, posting a .214 batting average with two homers and three RBI. Ruggiano has a .255 batting average with 45 home runs and 140 RBI in 434 career Major League games during seven seasons with the Rays (2007-08, '11), Marlins (2012-13), Cubs (2014) and Mariners (2015), appearing at all three outfield positions. Ruggiano was originally selected by the Dodgers in the 25th round of the 2004 First-Year Player Draft.

The Dodgers currently have 30 players on their active roster.
