SAN FRANCISCO -- Rookie Walker Buehler was with the Dodgers at AT&T Park on Friday and will be recalled to start the day game of Saturday's split doubleheader against the Giants.
Buehler was playing in the AT&T Park outfield 4 1/2 hours before Friday night's game.
Buehler threw five scoreless innings Monday against the Marlins in his first Major League start, then was optioned to Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga in a procedural move so he would be nearby for the club to bring him up as the 26th man for the doubleheader.
Buehler is the top-ranked prospect in the Dodgers' organization and the 12th overall, according to MLB Pipeline.
