Dodgers: Edwin Uceta Heads to Injured List, OF Zach Reks Recalled



With the All-Star break just two days away, the need for immediate arms isn’t as necessary. The Dodgers have been carrying extra pitchers recently to cope with the loss of some of their top arms. Now the team has lost another one of those arms to the injury bug as they keep on piling up.

Ahead of Saturday night’s game, the Dodgers placed right-handed pitcher Edwin Uceta on the 10-day injured list and recalled outfielder Zach Reks.

This will be Reks’ second time up with the team after making his big league debut earlier this season. It was a small sip of coffee the first time around as Zach only appeared in one game and had two plate appearances before heading back down to the minors. 

However, in 42 games with Oklahoma City, Reks has compiled a .325 batting average with 8 home runs and 29 RBI. While the 27-year old is not in the starting lineup, the hope is that he can provide the offense with a much-needed spark off the bench.

Meanwhile, Uceta has been up and down with the big league club all year. His performance has not be great to say the least as he has a has put up a 8.10 ERA in 11 appearances. With this side injury, the 23-year-old gets a chance to rest and reset ahead of the second half of the season.

  1. Repeat after me. Uceta, White, Cleavinger, Vesia et al are NOT helping the Dodgers “cope” with the loss of any of their “top arms.”

  2. And Rex looked just like everyone else they’ve brought up this year. “Swung on and missed” or “popped it up”
