Dodgers Place Pitcher on Injured List

The Dodgers have placed pitcher Brusdar Graterol on the 15-day injured list, retroactive to July 11, with right shoulder inflammation. 

Pitcher Reyes Moronta has been recalled in a corresponding move. 

Graterol last pitched this past Sunday, throwing two scoreless innings and recording his third save. The twenty-three year old had become a closer option for the Dodgers as of late before sustaining this injury. Graterol holds a 3.35 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 40 innings pitched this season. He has converted three of four save opportunities. 

Pitcher Reyes Moronta has been recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in Graterol's absence. Moronta has a 3.68 ERA, and 15 strikeouts in 14 innings pitched for the Dodgers this season.
