The Dodgers optioned infielder Blake DeWitt to Triple-A Albuquerque after the game on Sunday and then optioned outfielder Jamie Hoffmann to Albuquerque yesterday. To replace the two on the roster, the club recalled catcher A.J. Ellis yesterday and purchased the contract of power-hitting infielder/outfielder Mitch Jones today. Ellis is making his second appearance with the team this season as he was called up from May 29-31 in Chicago , but did not get into a game. Jones has hit 21 homers in just 192 at-bats at Albuquerque , including five in his last seven contests. Ellis will wear No. 44 and Jones will don No. 17. Jason Schmidt was transferred to the 60-day DL to make room for Jones. Jones is still looking to make his Major League debut, but it’s not the first time he has played for Joe Torre. Jones was called up to the Yankees on May 19, 2006 and spent two days on the active roster before being sent down.

per the Dodger game notes.
