LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers today recalled left-handed reliever Edward Paredes from Triple-A Oklahoma City and optioned right-handed pitcher Brock Stewart to OKC. 

Paredes, 31, has made nine relief appearances with the OKC Dodgers this season going 1-2 with one save and posting a 1.86 ERA (2 ER/9.2 IP), while limiting the opposition to a .229 average. The southpaw from the Dominican Republic saw his first career big league action last season with the Dodgers, going 1-0 with a 3.24 ERA (3 ER/8.1 IP) and striking out 11 batters without issuing a walk in 10 relief appearances over two stints with the club. Paredes, who is in his second season with the Dodger organization and his 10th overall professional campaign, was originally signed as a non-drafted free agent by the Seattle Mariners on May 12, 2005. 

Stewart, 26, made his 2018 debut last night against the Diamondbacks, allowing one run (a home run) on three hits in 1.2 innings of relief with three strikeouts.
