LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers have recalled right-handed pitcher Mitch White and placed Walker Buehler on the 10-day injured list with a blister on his right hand, retroactive to August 23.

White, 25, joins the Dodgers active roster for the second time this season after being placed on the 40-man roster on November 20, 2019. He did not appear in a game in his last stint with the club and his next game will be his MLB debut. The San Jose, CA native has been with the Dodgers four seasons, across five different levels, posting a 14-15 record with a 3.97 ERA (130 ER/294.2 IP) and 311 strikeouts. Last season, he split the season between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City, going a combined 4-6 with a 5.09 ERA (53 ER/93.2 IP) and 105 strikeouts. He was originally selected by the Dodgers in the second round of the 2016 First Year Player Draft out of Santa Clara University.

Buehler, 26, heads to the injured list for the first time this season after turning in his best outing of the campaign on Friday, in which he tossed 6.0 innings, allowed one run and struck out 11 in a win against the Rockies. On the season, he is 1-0 with a 4.32 ERA (12 ER/25.0 IP) and 28 strikeouts. In parts of four Major League seasons, he is a combined 24-9 with a 3.20 ERA (126 ER/354.0 IP) and 406 strikeouts in 67 games (58 starts). Last season he set career marks, going 14-4 with a 3.26 ERA (66 ER/182.1 IP) and 215 strikeouts in 30 starts. The 2019 All-Star was originally selected by the Dodgers in the first round (24th overall) of the 2015 First Year Player Draft out of Vanderbilt University.
