The Los Angeles Dodgers activated Chris Hatcher from the disabled list prior to Sunday’s win against the San Diego Padres.

Being sent down to make room for Chris Hatcher on the 25-man roster was rookie catcher, Kyle Farmer.

Farmer impressed in his first stint with the Major League club. Most notably for hitting the walk-off double against the San Francisco Giants in his first career plate appearance.

Farmer received a total of ten at-bats as a Major Leaguer in his first stint at baseball’s top level. He managed to collect four hits in his ten at-bats, all coming as a pinch-hitter. Farmer only made an appearance on the field in one game, when he played two innings at third base.

Hatcher will be entering a Dodger bullpen that seems to have found its core pieces without him. Before hitting the disabled list on June 22nd, Hatcher was sporting a 4.66 earned run average over his 26 appearances (36.2 innings pitched). His WHIP is 1.34, which is right around his career average.

Dave Roberts said that Kyle Farmer will definitely be back up this season, which probably means that he will be one of the September call-ups. Regardless of how much more we see of Farmer in 2017, his first stint definitely made an impression on the big league team.
