Los Angeles Dodgers INF Justin Sellers no longer has a locker at Dodger Stadium. RP Chris Withrow and OF Alex Castellanos have been assigned lockers, as well, so it appears that both are going to be recalled on Tuesday, June 11.
Fantasy Tip: Each call-up is a formerly lauded prospect and isn't expected to have a significant role.

The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled C Tim Federowicz from the minors Wednesday, May 8, and optioned SS Justin Sellers in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Ramon Hernandez hasn't been contributing at all with his bat, so expect Federowicz to be the primary offensive backup to A.J. Ellis. Sellers being optioned confirms that the Dodgers will run with Dee Gordon as their primary shortstop with Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) out. There's a decent chance Gordon will stay at short when Ramirez returns, too.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly didn't sound optimistic about the chances of SS Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) returning from the disabled list when he's eligible. "A while ... I hope that puts it in the right category," Mattingly said. "You never really know when a guy's ready or not because you can't ever get to the intensity that you need to get to on the hamstring where you're going to explode and ask for more of your body. It's going to be a while." Ramirez, on the other hand, is hoping for a quick recovery.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon started at shortstop both Saturday and Sunday in Ramirez's absence. Justin Sellers is still on roster, and he may get the occasional start at shortstop, but Gordon should now be owned in all leagues because of his speed and the fact that Ramirez could be out for quite a while. Also, the Dodgers are considering moving Ramirez to third base whenever he does return.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to place SS Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list because of a left hamstring injury sustained while running the bases Friday, May 3. In a corresponding move, SS Dee Gordon will be called up from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain at this time if Gordon or INF Justin Sellers will get the bulk of the playing time at shortstop, but Gordon appears to be the better bet and is the more attractive fantasy pickup for his speed. In 25 games for Albuquerque this year, Gordon hit .314 with 12 RBIs and 14 steals. Sellers might remain a factor for NL-only leaguers.
