Javy Guerra Activated From Bereavement List By Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday activated relief pitcher Javy Guerra before their series finale against the Philadelphia Phillies. The reliever was placed on the bereavement list on Saturday after going to Mexico to be with his family after his father suffered a heart attack and needed open heart surgery.

Guerra, who missed four games, on Wednesday said his father was okay. Guerra is 2-3 with a 3.00 ERA with eight saves in 30 appearances on the season.

To make room for Guerra on the active roster, the Dodgers optioned starting pitcher Stephen Fife, who picked up a no-decision while allowing one run in six innings on Tuesday night in his major league debut. The move gives the Dodgers an eight-man bullpen for the next four games, until Chad BIllingsley will be activated from the disabled list to start Monday in St. Louis.
