Avilan pitched one inning, allowing one hit in a relief appearance against the Cardinals on Wednesday. The southpaw has appeared in 23 games for the Dodgers this season and owns a 3.00 ERA.
The Dodgers had sent Liberatore to Triple-A Oklahoma for a rehab assignment on May 24.
Turner's hamstring progressing
Justin Turner's hamstring is feeling much better than he expected, he said on Thursday.
For the first time since going on the DL on May 19 for a strained hamstring injury, the Dodgers third baseman went through minor pregame warmup routines. He took a few ground balls and played catch at third base a few hours before the Dodgers' series finale against the Cardinals.
Turner said his next step is to get back in the batter's box.
"As long as all that goes good," Turner said, "I'll probably pick up a bat for the first time, take some swings in the cage."
