Dodgers News: Ryan Pepiot Optioned to Minor Leagues Again, Bruihl Recalled

After a one day stay at the big league level, pitcher Ryan Pepiot is heading back down to the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers. In his place, the club announced the recall of lefty reliever Justin Bruihl.

The Dodgers burned through 7 relievers to get through Sunday night’s win over the Padres. Pepiot was called up to eat up some bulk innings yesterday but struggled to get the ball by San Diego batters. He ultimately recorded only 6 outs while throwing an alarming 74 pitches on the hot LA night.

Bruihl returns to the Dodgers for the third time this season and first time since June 30th. He adds a fresh arm to the bullpen mix for Dave Roberts as the Giants come to town for three games. Bruihl owns a 3.57 ERA over 18 appearances this season.

One more note on Pepiot. He can’t be optioned again this season.

Pepiot’s biggest issue at the big league level has been finding the strike zone. The rookie right-hander has issued 26 walks in 33.1 innings. The long ball has also been an issue with 6 balls having left the ballpark over 8 appearances.
