Dodgers Activate Stults, Make Other Roster Moves In Preparation For Manny's Return
The Dodgers activated pitcher Eric Stults as one of a string of roster moves preparing for Manny Ramirez' return:
- Stults will rejoin the Dodgers to either start or rejoin the bullpen, but the starting job is his to lose.
- Third-string catcher A.J. Ellis was optioned back to AAA Albuquerque.
- OF Mitch Jones was designated for assignment.
- Claudio Vargas is expected to return to the 25-man on Friday as well, since his DL stint is up. Since he will need a 40-man roster spot as well, the Dodgers will move Hong-Chih Kuo to the 60-day DL. It is possible, however, that Vargas may be allowed to become a minor league free agent.
