Tim Federowicz C LAD 2 Months

Federowicz was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Federowicz is coming off yet another excellent season at Triple-A, but his .328 batting average and 14 homers over 78 games likely owes a huge debt of gratitude to the favorable parks of the PCL. His offensive production has never translated during multiple cups of coffee in the majors, and for that reason, he'll be little more than an insurance option behind A.J. Ellis and Drew Butera in September.

Tim Federowicz said Tuesday that he expects to be the Dodgers' primary catcher while A.J. Ellis (knee) is out.

It's possible Federowicz is just expressing confidence, but it's probably safe to assume he's been told to be prepared to play regularly. Drew Butera is also around but should remain in a backup role. Federowicz isn't bad with the stick and could have some deep league value while he's playing regularly.

Dodgers optioned C Tim Federowicz to Triple-A Albuquerque.

The 26-year-old had been expected to serve as the primary backup to A.J. Ellis, though a brutal performance this spring where he hit just .077 (2-for-26) could be the cause for the demotion. Drew Butera will begin the season as the backup catcher for the Dodgers.

Drew Butera and Miguel Olivo represent his primary competition this spring. The 26-year-old backstop slashed just .231/.275/.356 with four homers and 16 RBI in 160 at-bats for the Dodgers in 2013.

Tim Federowicz delivered a three-run double in the bottom of the eighth as the Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks 5-3 Tuesday in qame marred by a brawl.

The fight came in the seventh after Ian Kennedy hit Zack Greinke in the shoulder with a pitch. It was the fourth HBP of the game and the third that seemed intentional after Kennedy hit Yasiel Puig in the sixth and Greinke hit Miguel Montero in the top of the seventh. Kennedy and Puig were both ejected afterwards, as were Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson and Dodgers hitting coach Mark McGwire. Federowicz's big hit broke the game open against David Hernandez, and Kenley Jansen finished up from there.
