On Monday, the Dodgers reinstated Joc Pederson from the family medical emergency list and optioned Zach McKinstry.

It’s been an up-and-down week for Pederson, who was originally placed on the Paternity list a week ago. He returned after missing three days and was then placed on the family medical emergency list. Hopefully with him back with the club, everything is going well with his family and his newborn child.

In the move, McKinstry heads back to the Dodgers’ alternate side. The former 33rd round pick made his Major League debut on Thursday against the Rockies and he made his first career start on Sunday afternoon in Colorado. He recorded his first hit on Sunday, a double off Antonio Senzatela and finished the game 2-for-4. In four games with the Dodgers this year, he is 2-for-7 with a run scored.
