Dodgers’ Ross Stripling reinstated from disabled list
Stripling missed the last nine games with an inflamed right toe. The All-Star will be making his 17th start of the season. He has an 8-3 record with a 2.68 ERA.
To make room on the roster, the Dodgers optioned pitcher Pat Venditte to Triple-A Oklahoma City. The 33-year-old Venditte allowed four runs over 4 1/3 innings in five appearances.
The Dodgers play four straight against Colorado. Los Angeles is a ½-game behind Arizona in the NL West.
