Tim Federowicz joined the Los Angeles Dodgers organization in 2011 and saw sporadic time at the Major-League level in 2011 and 2012. Federowicz's role expanded in 2013 with the oblique injury to A.J. Ellis and he capitalized. In 25 games played after the All-Star break, Federowicz hit .276 with four doubles and four RBIs.
