LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers have recalled right-hander Jose Dominguez from Triple-A Albuquerque and optioned utility infielder Chone Figgins to their top minor league club to help shore up an overworked bullpen.

Dominguez, who has appeared in three games for the Dodgers in two stints this season, last appeared for Albuquerque on Thursday, registering a save by retiring the side in order with one strikeout.

Figgins made nine appearances as a pinch hitter for Los Angeles, going 1 for 6 with three walks.
