The Dodgers have recalled outfielder Joc Pederson from Triple-A Oklahoma City. They’ve also brought back fellow outfielder and OKC teammate, Trayce Thompson.

Pederson has had a rough 2017 season. After disabled list stints ranging from neck sprains, to groin issues, to a concussion, the 25-year old has not had a year for the record books. Pederson was optioned to Triple-A in mid-August after a painful 2-41 run. While in Oklahoma, Pederson continued to struggle while defensively posting up in left field, a position he has never started at in a major league game.

Thompson faced similar offensive woes this season, slashing .116/.208/.279 in 43 at bats with the Dodgers before heading to Triple-A.

This now leaves the Dodgers with an active roster of 38. Oh yeah, and the Diamondbacks are still breathing down their neck.
