      Dodgers' Luis Avilan: Recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday

      Avilan was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday. Avilan was recalled Monday due to a need for relieving pitchers due to the 16-inning game the Dodgers played against the Padres on Sunday. He will be most likely used as a long reliever used to provide organizational depth. He has only pitched a total of 0.2 innings, for three runs, two walks, and one strikeout, for an ERA of 40.50 and a WHIP of 7.50 in the 2016 season. This is unrepresentative of his career as a reliever, in which he has an ERA of 3.09 and a WHIP of 1.18 over 198.1 innings pitched, but he's a risky pick due to his ceiling as a reliever.

      Dodgers' Luis Avilan: To be called up Thursday

      Avilan will be called up from Triple-A on Thursday, J.P. Hoornstra of Southern California News Group reports. It'll be the first call up of the season for Avilan, who appeared in 23 games and logged a 5.17 ERA across 15.2 innings for the Dodgers in 2015. A corresponding move is yet to be announced, but the expectation is that either Louis Coleman will be placed on the bereavement list or Pedro Baez (concussion) will hit the 7-day DL.

      Dodgers snag strong starters in deal with Marlins, Braves

      The Dodgers have snagged several veterans in a just-completed three-way trade filled with prospects, per Yahoo Sports. They receive starting pitchers Alex Wood and Bronson Arroyo and relievers Luis Avilan and Jim Johnson, as well as minor league utility infielder Jose Peraza from the Braves. They also get first baseman Michael Morse and starting pitcher Mat Latos from the Marlins. The Dodgers sent several prospects to both teams. First baseman Hector Olivera, lefty Paco Rodriguez and starting pitcher Zachary Bird head to Atlanta while pitchers Victor Araujo and Angel Guzman go to Miami. The keys are Wood and Latos, who will likely immediately join the Los Angeles rotation, as well as Johnson, who has been used as the Atlanta closer. The 24-year-old Wood hasn't performed as well this season as he did in 2014, but he is 7-6 with a 3.54 ERA and 90 strikeouts in 119 1/3 innings. Latos is 4-7 with a 4.48 ERA, but has come on strong. He has allowed just six earned runs in his last 26 innings pitched. Johnson has nine saves, but will almost certainly be used behind Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen.

Miller only allowed one run but exited the game with the game tied at 1-1. Luis Avilan entered the game in the eighth inning and earned the win. Miller struck out eight batters and walked two. He only allowed three hits and now has an impressive 1.60 ERA. This is Miller's third game in a row where he's recorded at least eight strikeouts. He now has 39 for the season. "The first two innings I was kind of rushing a little bit," Miller said. "[Pierzynski] saw some things with my mechanics, which was nice. After that we settled in pretty good. I was just trying to put up zeroes. We did a good job of that as well." Miller's next start is projected for Sunday against the Marlins.
