Coffey will return to bullpen Monday
LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers reliever Todd Coffey is expected to be activated from the disabled list Monday, with Nathan Eovaldi having already been optioned back to Double-A Chattanooga following Sunday's game.

Coffey was eligible to be activated on Sunday, but manager Don Mattingly wanted Eovaldi available Sunday to serve as a long reliever with Chris Capuano starting for the Dodgers. In four starts this year entering Sunday, Capuano had pitched beyond the sixth inning only in his most recent start.

Coffey was disabled with what was announced as right knee inflammation, and had an ERA of 36.00 at the time he was shelved.

With the loss of Matt Guerrier to the disabled list with elbow tendinitis, Mattingly has shuffled roles and moved Josh Lindblom from middle innings to late innings. Jamey Wright, ordinarily the long reliever, pitched the 10th inning Saturday night and picked up his first win as a Dodger on Matt Kemp's walk-off home run.

Ronald Belisario, on a rehab assignment while completing a 25-game suspension for violating MLB's drug policy, allowed three runs in two innings Saturday night at Class A Rancho Cucamonga. He is expected to pitch at Triple-A Albuquerque this week and is eligible to be activated for Friday's game in Chicago.
