The move gives the Dodgers eight relievers for Sunday's series finale against the D-backs, who scored 14 runs off the Dodgers' bullpen in the first two games. The Dodgers were expected to bring up Liberatore for the four-game series that starts in San Francisco on Monday night.

"A little bit it's about the bullpen usage -- Adam is throwing the heck out of the baseball, but more importantly to get him here for the San Francisco series coming up," manager Dave Roberts said.

Liberatore was a mainstay in the bullpen last year until needing left elbow cleanup surgery. He had a 1.59 ERA in six games at OKC. Eibner went 1-for-5 in three games.
