Dee Gordon Returns From Disabled List, Dodgers Recall 2

The Los Angeles Dodgers activated shortstop Dee Gordon onto the active roster from the 60-day disabled list, and have also recalled pitcher Stephen Fife and Elian Herrera, the team announced on Tuesday.

Gordon suffered a ligament tear in his right thumb by sliding into third base on July 4 and has missed the last 57 games. Before the injury, the 24-year-old was leading Major League Baseball with 30 stolen bases. He was hitting .229 on the season with 17 RBI and a single home run.

Making way for Gordon to rejoin the active roster, infielder Adam Kennedy was sent to the 60-day disabled list with a strained right groin. The 13-year veteran was batting .262 and had 16 RBI on the year.

Los Angeles recalled Herrera and Fife from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Herrera has played in two previous stints with Los Angeles and can play in the infield or outfield. Fife, a right hander, went 11-7 with a 4.66 ERA for the minor league club. He has started three games for the Dodgers this year and holds a 2.16 ERA in 16.2 innings pitched.
