Dodgers add Butera, four others from Albuquerque

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers promoted five players from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday as rosters expanded for September.

Drew Butera, acquired from Minnesota on July 31, will be the third catcher behind A.J. Ellis and Tim Federowicz.

Scott Van Slyke provides a potent right-handed bat and can play outfield while Matt Kemp's rehab drags on. He also can play first base, but so can newly acquired Michael Young.

Dee Gordon, once the starting shortstop, can also be utilized as a pinch-runner because of his speed. He spent two stints with the Dodgers this year.

Stephen Fife was expected to be a sixth starter until the recent signing of Edinson Volquez. He struggled in his latest time with the Isotopes.

Peter Moylan has made 10 appearances with the Dodgers this year and has late-inning experience with Atlanta.

Reliever Chris Withrow, sent down Friday, will be recalled Tuesday, the first day he is eligible to return.
