ESPN’s Keith Law reports that the Dodgers are planning to call up 26-year-old right-hander Red Patterson from Triple-A Albuquerque to start the second half of Thursday’s doubleheader against the Twins — a makeup for Tuesday’s rainout at Target Field. It will be Patterson’s major league debut.
Patterson has posted a 3.40 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 432 strikeouts in 440 minor league innings since being selected by the Dodgers in the 29th round of the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft. He went to Sydney with the Dodgers in March and made an appearance in the club’s exhibition game against Team Australia.
Dan Haren will start the first game Thursday, with the other members of the Los Angeles rotation remaining on their regular pitching schedules. Patterson will likely be sent back to Albuquerque on Thursday night.
