Phoenix, AZ – The Los Angeles Dodgers activated shortstop Dee Gordon from the 60-day disabled list on Tuesday and recalled pitcher Stephen Fife and infielder Elian Herrera from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Gordon tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb while sliding into third base in a July 4 game against the Cincinnati Reds.
At the time of the setback, Gordon was hitting .229 with 36 runs scored in 78 games. He also led the majors with 30 stolen bases.
Herrera's call up marks his third stint with the big club. He is hitting .244 with a home run and 16 RBI in 53 games for the Dodgers this season.
Fife has made three starts for LA this season, going 0-1 with a 2.16 ERA.
To make room for Gordon on the 40-man roster, Los Angeles placed infielder Adam Kennedy on the 60-day DL with a strained right groin.
