The Los Angeles Dodgers placed Brusdar Graterol on the 15-day injured list due to right elbow inflammation and recalled Phil Bickford from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to their series finale against the New York Mets. Graterol’s IL stint was backdated to Wednesday, Aug. 31.

He last pitched Sunday, retiring all three Miami Marlins batters faced in what was a third appearance in five days. Overall, it was just Graterol’s fourth game since spending five weeks on the IL because of right shoulder inflammation.

Graterol not being available to face the Mets in the first game at Citi Field was part of the Dodgers only being able to rely on Heath Hembree, Alex Vesia, Evan Phillips and Jake Reed in their 4-3 comeback win.
