J.P. Hoornstra is reporting that Alex Vesia is being called up today. As you know the Dodgers’ (and Padres’) bullpens were heavily taxed last night in the big 11-6 12-inning win.
Source: Alex Vesia is getting called up by the Dodgers and will be active today. They used six relievers in a 12-inning, 11-6 win over the Padres that began Friday and ended early this morning.

There are two questions I have.
- Why is it not Brusdar Graterol? I thought he was almost ready.
- Who gets sent down or put onto the injured list?
However, congratulations to Vesia. He’s a native San Diegan who could make his Dodger debut in San Diego. The Dodgers acquired him from the Marlins in February.
We’ll keep you posted as the news trickles in.
