The Los Angeles Dodgers placed reliever Garrett Cleavinger on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right oblique strain.

The 27-year-old left-hander took the loss Friday night against the Los Angeles Angels, surrendering two runs (one earned) in the 10th inning.

Cleavinger is 2-4 with a 3.00 ERA in 22 appearances (one start) this season. He has struck out 21 and walked 12 in 18 innings.

In a corresponding move, the Dodgers selected the contract of left-hander Justin Bruihl from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Bruihl, 24, has not yet made his major league debut. He is 4-0 with a 2.63 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 26 games (one start) between Oklahoma City and Double-A Tulsa this season.
