Garlick was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday.
Garlick has had limited opportunities in a bench role for the Dodgers this season, posting a .216/.275/.432 slash line in 40 plate appearances. He could be back in a similar role at some point in the second half, but it would take a handful of injuries to open up regular playing time.
Garlick went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in a win against the Giants on Thursday.
The three-hit performance was the first of Garlick's career, while the home run -- a 375-foot blast to left field off Madison Bumgarner -- was his second in as many games. After beginning his career with only two hits in his first 12 at-bats, the 27-year-old rookie has now gone 5-for-8 over his last two games to lift his season slash line to .350/.409/.750 in 20 at-bats.
Garlick went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 9-2 rout over the Giants.
Garlick hit his first major-league home run in the second inning off Drew Pomeranz and subsequently added a single in the third to cap off a solid night at the plate. The 27-year-old has been filling in while Matt Beaty (hip) is on the injured list. Through 13 games, Garlick is batting .267/.353/.600 with two doubles and three runs scored.
Garlick was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Garlick spent a brief period on the Dodgers' roster in May, going hitless in his three at-bats. He'll likely have a similarly small role this time around. Garlick will replace Matt Beaty (hip), who heads to the injured list in a corresponding move.
The Dodgers optioned Garlick to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Garlick's latest stint with the big club lasted all of two days, with the outfielder going hitless in two pinch-hitting opportunities this weekend. He'll lose his spot on the active roster with the Dodgers reinstating starting pitcher Kenta Maeda (thigh) from the 10-day injured list ahead of the series finale.
Garlick was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.
The 27-year-old was demoted earlier in the week but makes his return to the majors as Joe Kelly lands on the bereavement list. Garlick is still looking for his first major-league hit after making a pinch-hit appearance during his first stint in the majors.
Garlick was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Garlick spent four days on the big-league roster, failing to grab a hit in his only at-bat. Julio Urias was reinstated from administrative leave in a corresponding move.
Garlick's contract was selected by the Dodgers on Friday.
With off days Monday and Thursday next week, the Dodgers will use an extra bench bat, as Kenta Maeda heads to the injured list with a thigh bruise. Garlick has hit well for Triple-A Oklahoma City this season, especially in the power department, posting a .280/.375/.627 line with 10 homers in 35 games, though it's unclear how many opportunities he'll have to show off that power with the Dodgers.
Garlick is expected to have his contract purchased from Triple-A Oklahoma City for Friday's game against the Reds, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Garlick is slashing .280/.375/.627 with 10 homers and 20 RBI through 35 games at Triple-A this season, which is evidently good enough to earn him a look in the big leagues. He'll likely serve as outfield depth during his first major-league stint.
