The Los Angeles Dodgers have recalled catching prospect Kyle Farmer from Triple-A Oklahoma City and optioned starting/relief pitcher Brock Stewart back down to Oklahoma City, according to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County register.

Brock Stewart was the starting pitcher in yesterday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The start turned out to be a total disaster for him, only completing two innings before he was absolutely demolished in the third inning, forced to leave the game before recording an out. His line ended up at two innings pitched, four hits, five earned runs, four walks and only two strikeouts. His earned run average is up to 3.38 now after a few less than stellar starts.

Farmer is listed on today’s reserves, Stewart is not on the lineup card.

Recalled in his place to give the Dodgers a now four man bench, is catcher/utility infielder, Kyle Farmer. Farmer has already made quite the impression on Dodger fans, hitting a walk-off two-run double in his very first Major League at-bat. He has also come close to a couple home runs, hitting it to the wall both times. He will most likely take over his same role as a pinch-hitter only until the rosters expand in September.
