Dodgers activate Turner, recall Rodriguez

ST. LOUIS (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers have activated infielder Justin Turner from the 15-day disabled list and added another lefty against the St. Louis Cardinals by recalling Paco Rodriguez from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Manager Don Mattingly said Friday the team expected starter Josh Beckett to come off the DL from a left hip impingement early next week at Pittsburgh.

Infielder Carlos Triunfel, batting .143 with a homer in 14 at-bats, was optioned to the minors Friday.

Turner was sidelined June 29 with a left hamstring strain. He was batting .302 with three homers and 21 RBIs in 59 games. Rodriguez had a 6.43 ERA in 10 games over seven innings in two stints.
