Dodgers Activate Nomar for a Few Days

The Dodgers activated shortstop Nomar Garciaparra from the DL before tonight's game against the Phillies.  In his first inning back, he robbed Jimmy Rollins of a hit deep in the hole and surprisingly did not re-injure himself.

It would be unreasonable to expect Nomar to stay healthy for more than a few games, so the club placed Andruw Jones on the DL with a fake injury, retaining Angel Berroa and Pablo Ozuna as Nomar-insurance.
