LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena is back at the club's facility at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz., resuming baseball activities now that his suspension is over, the team has confirmed.

Arruebarrena began his regular season still back in Arizona in extended spring training, but on May 21 was suspended by the team for the remainder of the 2015 season for "repeated failures to comply with his contract."

That suspension was appealed to the commissioner's office by Arruebarrena, and he and the Dodgers eventually reached a settlement of a 30-day suspension instead of the entire season, as first reported by Craig Calcaterra of NBC Sports.

Financially, this means Arruebarrena will get most of his $3 million salary this season. Instead of forfeiting all of his 2015 pay, Arruebarrena only loses 30 days of a 183-day season, or roughly $491,803.

There isn't yet a timetable for Arruebarrena to join one of the Dodgers' minor league affiliates.

Arruebarrena, who is not on the 40-man roster, has three more years and $13 million remaining on his contract after 2015.
