The Dodgers today announced the placement of pitcher Brian Wilson on the 15-day DL and the recall of right-hander Jose Dominguez from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Signed by the Dodgers last July, Wilson posted a 2-1 record with a 0.66 earned run average.
Los Angeles wanted Wilson back, but not in his familiar role as closer. Wilson elected to re-sign with the Dodgers for a one-year $10 million deal with a $9 million player option for 2015.
The three-time All Star opened 2014 with a scoreless inning in Australia, striking out two.
In the first game stateside in San Diego, Wilson gave up a walk, a single and a long ball while not retiring a batter.
The move to the disabled list is retroactive to that night, March 30.
The hard-throwing Dominguez made the trip Down Under, allowing three runs in 1/3 of an inning. Before the team started the series with the Padres, Dominguez was sent back to the minors.
Only 23 and armed with a 100+ mph fast ball, Dominguez is an intriguing talent.
In nine games with the Dodgers in 2013, Dominguez posted a 2.16 earned run average. The club sees him as a future closer.
