Dodgers optioned C Tim Federowicz to Triple-A Albuquerque.

He's hit only .131/.169/.230 in 18 games with the big club this season. A.J. Ellis is back from the DL to replace Federowicz on the roster.
Jun 13 - 6:00 PM

Dodgers recalled C Tim Federowicz from Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll replace the injured A.J. Ellis (ankle) on the active roster. Federowicz is batting just .109 with a .315 OPS in 50 plate appearances with the Dodgers this season and isn't a fantasy option.
May 26 - 5:05 PM

Dodgers optioned C Tim Federowicz to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Miguel Olivo has been called up in a corresponding roster move. Federowicz was batting just .109 with a .315 OPS in 50 plate appearances this season for Los Angeles.
Apr 30 - 4:03 PM

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 recalled C Tim Federowicz from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Federowicz lost the competition for the Dodgers' backup catcher job this spring, but he'll now get semi-regular playing time behind the plate for Los Angeles with A.J. Ellis out 4-6 weeks following knee surgery.
Apr 8 - 5:48 PM

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.
Mar 21 - 10:47 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly noted Saturday that Tim Federowicz has the inside track on the team's backup catcher job.

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.
Feb 15 - 1:04 PM

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

Tim Federowicz had a homer and a two-run double against the Rockies on Saturday.

Manager Don Mattingly has made it very, very clear that he prefers Federowicz to Ramon Hernandez as a backup catcher. Today's start was the second he's made in three days since he was recalled from Triple-A. He was 3-for-22 with no RBI before driving in three runs today.

Dodgers recalled C Tim Federowicz from Triple-A Albuquerque.

No corresponding move has been announced, but Matt Kemp (hamstring) could be headed to the DL. Federowicz has been up and down with the big club multiple times this season and has batted just .176/.222/.176 over 10 games.

Dodgers optioned C Tim Federowicz to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Federowicz has been up and down with the big club multiple times this season and has batted just .176/.222/.176 over 10 games. He'll probably get another shot later this year.

Federowicz lost out on the backup catcher job after Ramon Hernandez was acquired. He'll serve as the third catcher for now but will likely head back down when the club needs to activate Ted Lilly.
