The BIG news of the day is the announcement the Dodgers have called up Jerry Sands from AAA Albuquerque. To make room on the 25-man roster, the team designated outfielder Xavier Paul for assignment. Manager Don Mattingly says Sands will get plenty of playing time in left field and at first base. The 23-year old Sands was the Dodgers 25th round draft pick in 2008. So far this season at Triple-A, Sands is hitting .400 in 40 at bats with 5 homeruns and 17 RBI. Sands will make his major league debut tonight batting 7th and starting in left field.
