The Dodgers have activated Ross Stripling off the 10 day disabled list as they begin their important weekend series vs. the Colorado Rockies. This brings their active roster to 34 players and they’re going to need everyone of them without Kenley Jansen.

It is a coincidence that Stripling comes back against the Rockies as it was in that series in mid-August that he suffered from the back problems, which turned out to be two compressed discs from a soft mattress at the team hotel.

In eleven appearances as a reliever, Stripling has a line of 0.59 ERA with 17 strikeouts and 6 walks over 15.1 innings. The bullpen is going to need his help to keep the Dodgers’ playoff chances alive.
