Dodgers activate second baseman Mark Ellis
Good news for a team that could use some, as Mark Ellis has returned to the Dodgers' active roster after missing the last three weeks.
The Dodgers have activated second baseman Mark Ellis from the 15-day disabled list. Ellis had been sidelined since April 27 with a strained right quad. To make room on the active roster, the Dodgers have optioned catcher Tim Federowicz back to Triple-A Albuquerque.
This season, Ellis is batting a nifty .342/.363/.452 in 80 plate appearances. For his career, Ellis owns an OPS+ of 95. He's slated to be in the lineup against the Braves on Sunday.
