ATLANTA (AP) — Dodgers second baseman Mark Ellis has returned to the lineup after missing the last 19 games with a right quadriceps strain.

Catcher Tim Federowicz was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque to make room for Ellis on the 25-man roster. Ellis was batting second Sunday against the Braves.

Ellis was hitting .342 with two homers and 11 RBIs when he injured his quad while running out a grounder in a win over Milwaukee on April 26.

The 11-year veteran is in his second season with the Dodgers and has a career .266 batting average. Ellis made his last rehab appearance with Double-A Chattanooga on Saturday and went 0 for 3 with a walk.
