The Los Angeles Dodgers called up right-hander Jake Reed from Triple-A Oklahoma City and designated outfielder Steven Souza Jr. for assignment on Tuesday.

Reed, 28, will be on the active roster for the first time in his career and looking to make his major league debut. The Dodgers continue a four-game series in Miami against the Marlins on Tuesday night. The Marlins won the opening game 5-4 on Monday.

Reed is 0-0 with a 2.61 ERA and 11 strikeouts in nine relief appearances at Oklahoma City this season. He was acquired by the Dodgers on June 4, two days after Los Angeles Angels released him.

Souza, 32, appeared in 13 games for the Dodgers, batting .160 with one homer and two RBIs.

Souza has spent parts of six seasons in the majors, batting .231 with 72 homers and 205 RBIs in 495 games with the Washington Nationals (2014), Tampa Bay Rays (2015-17), Arizona Diamondbacks (2018), Chicago Cubs (2020) and Dodgers.
