The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled left-hander Victor Gonzalez and designated right-hander Jake Reed for assignment on Saturday.

Gonzalez, 27, went 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA and 12 strikeouts in six games at Triple-A Oklahoma City this season.

He last pitched with the Dodgers on Aug. 22, 2021 and has had multiple injuries since, including elbow surgery.

Gonzalez has been showing off his improved fitness on social media, including recent side-by-side shots reflecting a reported 30-pound weight loss.

He went 6-1 with one save, a 2.75 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 59 games (two starts) with the Dodgers from 2020-21.

Reed, 30, pitched two-thirds of an inning in his season debut Friday against the Chicago Cubs, allowing six runs on five hits.

Reed is 2-1 with a 7.57 ERA in 29 games over parts of two seasons with the Dodgers, Baltimore Orioles and New York Mets.
