Dee is Back!

With the specter of a Hanley Ramirez injury in the forefront of everyone's mind, the Dodgers decide to recall Dee Gordon.  In his place, yesterdays starter Stephen Fife is optioned back to Albuquerque.  Via a Dodgers tweet:

I do not know if he is in St. Louis right now.  Nick Punto is scheduled to start tonights game against the Cardinals.

Per a Dodgers press release:
The Los Angeles Dodgers today recalled shortstop Dee Gordon from Triple-A Albuquerque and optioned right-handed pitcher Stephen Fife to Albuquerque.

Gordon, 25, has hit safely in his last 17 games with Albuquerque, batting .366 (26-for-71) since July 14, and overall is batting .307 with a Pacific Coast League-leading 44 steals to go along with 16 doubles, eight triples and a .398 on-base percentage in 80 games. With the Isotopes, Gordon has hit .299 (23-for-77) with runners in scoring position. Gordon batted .175 with a home run and five RBI in 19 games during his previous call-up May 4-26.

Fife, 26, was reinstated from the disabled list yesterday (right shoulder bursitis) and picked up the win with 5.1 scoreless innings against the Cubs. Fife has gone 4-3 with a 2.47 ERA in nine big league starts this season.
Now I need to find that Dee Gordon t-shirt I wrote about previously.
