The Dodgers take on the Nationals in game 2 of their series tonight in Los Angeles. Mitch White will take the ball and go up against former LA prospect Josiah Gray. But before that could happen, they had to make a move to support the bullpen.
Reyes Moronta pitched an incredibly rocky outing on Monday night against Washington. Aside from walking 2 batters, he also threw a couple of wild pitches to really get himself in a jam. He completed the tightrope act though, getting out of the outing scoreless. The Dodgers sent him back to Triple-A this afternoon.
Moronta has given up 6 earned runs in 4.1 innings of work this month. In his place, the Dodgers brought back Garrett Cleavinger. While he has not pitched in a big league game since halfway through May, he has been lighting up hitters in OKC. He punched out 47 batters in just 29 innings of work.
