Dodgers Option Jerry Sands To Triple A Albuquerque

The Los Angeles Dodgers ended their homestand on a relative high note on Wednesday night with their 6-4 win over the Colorado Rockies. But for Jerry Sands the results were mixed, as he was optioned to Triple A Albuquerque after the game.

Sands was recalled on Monday but appeared in just one game, going 0-for-3 Monday while starting in right field to give Andre Ethier a day off. Sands hit .174 (4-for-23) in nine games in two stints with the Dodgers this season.

The Dodgers haven't yet made the corresponding move, but that will be the activation of Adam Kennedy from the disabled list on Friday before their game against the Miami Marlins.

In other roster news, outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. accepted his assignment to Triple A Albuquerque. Gwynn was designated for assignment on Monday when Sands was recalled. Gwynn, whose playing time opportunities vanished with the acquisition of Shane Victorino, could see time in September when active rosters expand as a pinch runner and defensive replacement.
