The Los Angeles Dodgers have activated left-handed pitcher Andrew Heaney from the injured list, recalled infielder/outfielder Zach McKinstry, optioned right-handed pitcher Reyes Moronta and placed outfielder Mookie Betts on the injured list with a right rib fracture.
Heaney, 30, returns from the injured list after missing two months and pitched against the Cleveland Guardians on Sunday, June 19. Prior to being sidelined with left shoulder discomfort, he was 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA (0 ER/10.1 IP) and 16 strikeouts in two games for the Dodgers. He made three rehab starts between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City, going 0-1 with a 0.73 ERA (1 ER/12.1 IP) and 19 strikeouts.
Heaney has been in the Major Leagues for parts of nine seasons with Miami (2014), Los Angeles-AL (2015-2021), New York-AL (2021), and Los Angeles-NL (2022) and he is a combined 33-38 with a 4.65 ERA (333 ER/644.2 IP) and 666 strikeouts. He signed with Los Angeles in free agency this offseason after spending parts of last season with the Los Angeles Angels and New York Yankees.
Betts, 29, heads to the injured list for the first time this season and the third time in his Dodger career. The 2018 American League MVP was hitting .273 (67-for-245) with 17 homers, 40 RBI and 53 runs scored in 60 games for the Dodgers.
