LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today reinstated outfielder Joc Pederson from the 15-day disabled list, recalled left-handed pitcher Luis Avilan from Triple-A Oklahoma City and placed both right-handed pitcher Casey Fien (retroactive to July 17) and left-handed pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu (retroactive to July 9) on the 15-day disabled list with elbow tendonitis.
Pederson, 24, missed 15 games due to a sprained right AC joint after colliding with the outfield wall on June 28 at Milwaukee. Prior to being placed on the disabled list, Pederson hit .281 (16-for-57) with nine runs, four doubles, five home runs and seven RBI in his last 18 games since June 10. He went 5-for-8 with a run scored and four walks in three rehab appearances with Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Avilan, who turns 27 today, has appeared in six games in his three previous stints with the Dodgers, allowing three runs in 3.0 innings. The Venezuela native is averaging better than a strikeout per inning with Triple-A OKC this year, striking out 30 in 28.0 innings, while posting an 0-3 record with four saves and a 4.82 ERA in 27 games.
Ryu, 29, made one start for Los Angeles after being reinstated from the 60-day disabled list (left shoulder surgery) on July 7, allowing six runs on eight hits in 4.2 innings against the Padres in his first start since September 12, 2014.
Fien, 32, has gone 0-1 with a 4.09 ERA (10 ER/22.0 IP) in 21 relief appearances for the Dodgers this year after being claimed from the Minnesota Twins on May 7.
