Josh Ravin has been called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City by the Dodgers, taking the place of Joe Blanton, who has been placed on the bereavement list.

The 28-year-old Ravin began the season on the disabled list after breaking his left forearm in a Leap Day car accident. Before he was ready to be activated, MLB suspended him 80 games after a positive test for a performance-enhancing substance. He was reinstated from the restricted list August 3.

In three appearances with the Dodgers’ Arizona League team, Ravin struck out 11 in five innings of one-run ball. He then joined Oklahoma City, for whom he has pitched four shutout innings with two baserunners and seven strikeouts.

For the Dodgers in 2015, Ravin pitched 9 1/3 innings and struck out 12 but allowed 18 baserunners, including three home runs.
