Andy LaRoche to Return to Dodgers onTuesday

Good news, Dodger fans: Andy LaRoche is set to return on Tuesday for the road series against the Padres.  LaRoche replaces Hu, who we noted yesterday was being optioned back to the minors to work more on his game.  Interesting to note that Andy’s been playing at first and second down in AAA, and will return as a back-up to Loney at first and DeWitt at third base.  I’m sure there wasn’t really a question of having Andy start over DeWitt at third, but it’s nice to see Torre giving a well-deserved vote of confidence to Blake, who is one of the better young players for the Dodgers this season.
