Mark Ellis returns to lineup for Dodgers
Dodgers second baseman Mark Ellis has returned to the lineup
after missing the last 19 games with a right quadriceps strain.
Catcher Tim Federowicz was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque to
make room for Ellis on the 25-man roster. Ellis was batting second
Sunday against the Braves.
Ellis was hitting .342 with two homers and 11 RBIs when he
injured his quad while running out a grounder in a win over
Milwaukee on April 26.
The 11-year veteran is in his second season with the Dodgers and
has a career .266 batting average. Ellis made his last rehab
appearance with Double-A Chattanooga on Saturday and went 0 for 3
with a walk.
