Dodgers News: Edwin Uceta Recalled With Andre Jackson Being Optioned



The Dodgers have recalled 23-year-old right-hander Edwin Uceta to the show from Triple-A Oklahoma City while optioning their right-handed pitcher Andre Jackson in the process.  Uceta, who has toggled back and forth between the OKC Dodgers and Los Angeles, compiled 25 strikeouts with an underwhelming 6.64 ERA in 14 appearances with the club this year. 

While he hasn’t particularly put it all together with the LA Dodgers, the savvy reliever has shown flashes of latent potential during his time in the farm system. 

Since signing with the Dodgers as an international free agent in 2016, Uceta has posted an ERA of 3.86 in 84 minor league games. Within those six seasons in the minors, his overall record sits at 21-15. Jackson suffered his first career loss in the series opener against the Colorado Rockies on Friday, tossing 4.2 innings and allowing one earned run on four hits.

During his brief stint with the Dodgers this year, Jackson made an impressive major league debut on Aug. 16, tossing four scoreless innings out of the bullpen. 

Additionally, the former 12th round draft pick has compiled seven strikeouts, allowing one earned run in 8.2 IP in two games with the club.

  1. Behold! Ladies and gentlemen– Roberts is starting Knebel in tonight’s game followed by Price in what appears Will be back to back BP games! I didn’t find any reason for this except I’m completely exhausted of this manager’s dumb, stupid and ridiculous decisions. He’s actually trying my patience and I’m sure that of some others here as well. Seager sits tonight while Betts is at 2nd , Trea is at SS, but Bellinger is in CF. BUT at least Smith is up in the batting order.

  2. Andre Jackson has given two stellar performances for the Dodgers. Mitch White was outstanding in his last appearance. They have followed openers in bullpen games and gotten it done. The handling of the everyday players however is beyond questionable. Bellinger, Lux, and McKinney are all deadwood, providing no offensive punch at all. They are rally killers. Beaty deserves to be on this team all the time. He provides offensive punch and defensive versatility. Pollack needs to be in every single game. I’ve never seen him look better in his career.
