Dodgers Recall Wall from Triple-A – Option Tolleson to Rancho Cucamonga

The Dodgers have recalled right-handed pitcher Josh Wall from Triple-A Albuquerque and optioned right-hander Shawn Tolleson to Single-A Rancho Cucamonga. Tolleson had made 13 consecutive scoreless appearances (11.2 IP) from July 24-Aug. 24 before allowing two runs on back-to-back homers in 1.1 innings of work yesterday. Overall, the 24-year-old was 1-0 with a 3.42 ERA in 25 appearances with Los Angeles.

Wall, who was recently named to the All-Pacific Coast League team, joins the active roster for the second time this season after a call-up from July 14-22. The 25-year-old made his big league debut and his only Major League appearance on July 22 at New York, tossing a scoreless inning of relief and picking up the win in the Dodgers’ 8-3, 12-inning victory. Wall has posted a 1.98 ERA (3 ER/13.2 IP) and a .188 opponents’ batting average in 14 relief appearances with Albuquerque since the All-Star break, going a perfect 9-for-9 in save opportunities in that span. Overall, Wall, who was originally selected by Los Angeles in the second round of the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, leads the Pacific Coast League with 27 saves and is 2-1 with a 4.70 ERA in 53 games.

    I didn’t see this one coming. I have to believe that Shawn will be recalled on September 1st. This could also help to get the Quakes into the playoffs. :)

    I think his going to Rancho was to keep him in So Cal when needed back in LA. But I’m sure Busty is loving it !!

    To me it suggests another trade is coming. The Dodgers are still looking for a starting pitcher. Vargas and Millwood were placed on waivers by Seattle. We are interested in either of them but they won’t get to us.

    Unfortunately for Josh he didn’t shine in last night’s game. I have to believe he is the one that would be offered in a trade. On the other hand, Shawn could be a player to be named later. Hope not.

    Otherwise, this move makes no sense.

    MLB Trade Rumors – Earlier today it was reported that the Dodgers were in the market for a starting pitcher. Los Angeles has been far and away the most aggressive team in this season’s trade market, and they were linked to both Seattle hurlers prior to the non-waiver trade deadline.
