The Dodgers announced a few roster moves today, surprisingly it's all good news for now. Dylan Hernandez tweets Ivan De Jesus Jr. was optioned back to the minors, enabling the Dodgers to recall 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke. The Dodgers were also given a much needed dose of good news today. Andre Ethier who strained his oblique in yesterday's game, has avoided the disabled list, at least for now.

Ethier is officially day-to-day, Mattingly announced earlier today. That must mean Ethier's MRI came back looking pretty good. This wonderful news couldn't have come at a better time. Hopefully he misses a few games, then he's able to bounce back, and get this offense going again.

The Dodgers also go some other good news, Javy Guerra could start a rehab assignment on Sunday. Which could put his timetable to return before the All-Star break. Matt Kemp is also reportedly close to a rehab assignment, and could begin one shortly after Javy Guerra.

Mark Ellis is officially expected back before or immediately following the All-Star break. Some more good news that will help get this starting lineup solidified a bit better. Matt Guerrier, Ted Lilly, and Blake Hawksworth are all expected back sometime between mid-to-late July.

Finally one last thought as we are always thinking blue here at Dodgers Rumors. 2012 All-Star voting ends tonight, so don't forget to vote! If you have already voted, vote again!
