The Dodgers made at least one move before their loss against the Giants on Wednesday. It was not the move that fans had hoped since Corey Seager is still on the injured list. But they did bring up an infielder to help with a rash of injuries.
Prior to Wednesday’s game, the Dodgers recalled infielder Sheldon Neuse. They sent down LHP Darien Núñez to Triple-A in order to make room for Neuse on the active roster. Núñez last pitched on Tuesday night when he was dinged with 2 runs across 2 innings.
Fo Neuse, this will be his second stint with the Dodgers big league club. He has hit .172 with 3 homers and 4 runs driven in across 28 games with them. Neuse was batting .282 with 5 homers and 24 runs driven in with OKC.
The Dodgers do need some help in the infield with lingering injuries. Max Muncy and Justin Turner were both hit by pitches on Tuesday night in the win and were removed from the game. Muncy was able to start on Wednesday though and JT came into the game late.
The Dodgers and Giants will play 1 more game on Thursday night in Los Angeles. They will be looking to split the series and walk away chasing San Francisco 1 game in the West.
