The Dodgers are headed out to the desert today to take on the Diamondbacks for the first time this season. Coming off of a series win against the Padres, they’ll look to continue that run against another NL West team. This time they’ll be doing it against an Arizona team that has struggled through the first part of the season.
But the Dodgers will have a slightly different look to the roster for this series. They already lost David Price to the COVID injured list during the Padres series and added in Reyes Moronta to help out in the bullpen.
Today, the Dodgers also added Andre Jackson back into the mix. They recalled the right-handed hurler from Triple-A Oklahoma City where he had made 3 starts this year. In those 3 starts, he combined for 10.1 innings of work and allowed just 1 earned run.
Dodgers recall Andre Jackson and option McKinstry.

Jackson made his debut with the Dodgers last season and pitched in 3 games. He struck out 10 batters across 11.2 innings of work, but control was also an issue. He allowed 6 walks in those 3 games and got tagged with 3 runs.
In order to make room for Jackson on the roster, the Dodgers optioned Zach McKinstry to Triple-A. He appeared in one game over the weekend, coming on as a defensive replacement. He did not reach in his only at-bat of the year so far.
