Dodgers Promote Three From Albuquerque: Jerry Sands, Tim Federowicz, John Ely

Jerry Sands went on a power surge with the Albuquerque Isotopes, hitting 12 home runs in his final 33 games.

With the season of the Triple A Albuquerque Isotopes now over, the Dodgers added three players to the active roster on Tuesday. The Dodgers recalled outfielder / first baseman Jerry Sands, and pitcher John Ely from Albuquerque. In addition, as reported Monday night, the Dodgers purchased the contract of catcher Tim Federowicz, adding him to the 40-man roster, per Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times.

To make room for Federowicz on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers transferred Vicente Padilla to the 60-day disabled list.

Sands has hit 66 home runs across all levels in the last two seasons, including two in a 41-game stint with the Dodgers earlier this year. Sands was optioned back to Triple A on June 9, and worked with hitting coach John Valentin to make adjustments to his swing. He hit 12 home runs in his final 33 games with the Isotopes, including four on the road.

Ely returns for his fourth stint this season with the Dodgers, having only appeared in a total of two games in his first three turns in the majors this season. Ely, who made 18 starts in 2010 with the Dodgers, has a 6.06 ERA in 38 starts in Triple A over the last two years (with a FIP somewhere in between 4.78 and 4.88, for those scoring at home). Ely last pitched on September 2, and figures to pitch in long relief for the Dodgers.

Jamie Hoffmann and Ivan DeJesus are two Isotopes who are on the 40-man roster who did not get the call to the majors, at least not yet.

The Dodgers now have 33 players on the active roster: 17 position players and 16 pitchers, though that number includes Casey Blake, who was not placed on the disabled list but is out for the season with a neck injury.
