The Dodgers promoted Knack from Double-A Tulsa to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, Josh Thomas of DodgersDigest.com reports.

Knack won't be part of the season-opening roster at Double-A Tulsa while he continues to build up his pitch count at the Dodgers' spring training facility in Arizona after he was delayed by a soft-tissue injury earlier in camp, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Knack has resumed facing hitters and appears to be fully healthy at the moment, but the workouts he missed earlier in the spring were enough to prevent him from making Tulsa's Opening Day rotation.
