The Dodgers made some minor moves to their roster prior to their game Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. They recalled left-handed pitcher Bryan Hudson and optioned right-handed pitcher Gavin Stone to Triple-A.

Hudson pitched in one game for LA earlier in the season and was rocked for three runs and four hits against the San Francisco Giants. He will rejoin the team in the bullpen for some added depth. He holds an ERA of 13.50 for the two innings that he pitched in June.
However, the big left-handed pitcher has seen success in Triple-A Oklahoma City. Hudson owns an ERA of just 1.83 in 29 games. He has thrown 34.1 innings over that time and has struck out 57 batters.
Hudson gets another chance to show the team that he can be effective out of the bullpen and if he executes well enough, maybe the team will allow him to stay.
As for Stone, he appeared in four games for the Dodgers and holds an ERA of 12.75. Stone pitched two innings of work on Tuesday night against Pittsburgh, allowing one run and five hits to the Pirates. The hope is that he can work on some of the mechanics down in Triple-A and be called back up to the big leagues later in the year.
The Dodgers pitching issues continue to plague them and it has caused them to tinker with different options all season long. It seems like every other day they are calling someone up and sending someone down due to the injuries and inconsistent nature of their arms.
They continue their four-game series against the Pirates tonight and then welcome in the Angels for a brief series before the All-Star break.
