Los Angeles Dodgers Recall James McDonald  From Albuquerque

The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled RHP James McDonald from triple-A Albuquerque and sent down RHP Travis Schlichting. 

McDonald was named the Pacific Coast League Player of the Week for Jun. 8-15. During that stretch he went 1-0 and allowed just one run in 14 innings pitched. 

He also struck out 23 hitters over those two starts for the Isotopes. 

For the season in triple-A, McDonald is 1-0 with a 3.26 ERA in six starts. 

McDonald made the Dodgers' squad as the fifth starter following the spring, but his performance moved him back down to triple-A in a hurry. 

The 24-year old has had two stints for the big league club in '09. He has appeared in 10 games, going 1-1 with a high ERA of 5.11. He has walked 16 hitters in 18 and two-third innings, and struck out only six.

McDonald will perform as the long reliever out of the bullpen, if needed. Jeff Weaver, the normal pitcher in this role, is starting for the Dodgers on Saturday.
