Dodgers recall reliever Garcia from minors, activate Greinke

NEW YORK (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers have recalled reliever Yimi Garcia from Triple-A Oklahoma City, giving them a fresh arm in the bullpen.

The team also activated All-Star ace Zack Greinke from the paternity list to start Sunday against the New York Mets. Greinke entered with a scoreless streak of 43 2-3 innings, longest in the majors since Orel Hershiser set the major league record of 59 for the Dodgers in 1988.

Greinke originally was scheduled to pitch Friday, but he went to Los Angeles to be with his wife, Emily, on Thursday night for the birth of their first child, Bode Nicholas. The right-hander, who was leading the majors with a 1.30 ERA, rejoined the team this weekend at Citi Field.
