Only a season removed from becoming a pitcher, Kenley Jansen has been called up to the major leagues.

The 6-foot-6 right-hander, who started last season as a catcher, was 5-1 with a 1.60 earned-run average in a combined 33 appearances for Class-A Inland Empire and Double-A Chattanooga.

To clear room on the active roster for Jansen, the Dodgers designated Justin Miller for assignment.
