Dodgers call up two relievers between games of doubleheader

Dodgers call up left-hander Daniel Coulome and right-hander Josh Ravin from triple-A Oklahoma

They may only have a little over an hour between games, but that doesn’t mean the Dodgers could not get busy doing what they do best – make constant roster moves.

After falling 6-3 in Tuesday's opener, the Dodgers made two moves prior to the nightcap in Denver to booster their bullpen. Busy, busy, busy.

The Dodgers brought up left-hander Daniel Coulome and right-hander Josh Ravin from triple-A Oklahoma, optioned catcher Austin Barnes back to Oklahoma, and for the second time this season, designated left-hander David Huff for assignment to make room of the 40-man for Ravin.

The Dodgers went with a bullpen game in Tuesday’s opener, using five relievers. They would have had only three fresh relievers for the second game if they had not made the between-games move.

This is already Coulombe’s third stint with the Dodgers, though he has appeared in ony one game (one run in one inning). He has a 1.13 ERA (two earned runs in 15 2/3 innings) and struck out 18 in 13 games.

Ravin is looking to make his major league debut. He was 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA in 14 games this season, with 30 strikeouts in 20 innings for Oklahoma City.

Barnes appeared in five games (two starts), but went just one for five with a walk. Huff appeared in the last two games, throwing a scoreless inning in Tuesday’s opener.

The Dodgers have made 30 roster moves in their first 51 games.
