Starting a shift of the active roster since the Opening Day series in Australia, the Dodgers reinstated outfield Carl Crawford from the paternity list.

To make room for Crawford, Los Angeles sent infielder Alexander Guerrero to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Crawford’s fiancé Evelyn Lozada gave birth to the outfielder’s third child, Carl Leo Crawford early Sunday morning in Arizona.

The Dodgers signed Guerrero to a 4-year $28 million contact in hopes the 27-year old would be the team’s starting second baseman.

Guerrero responded by hitting .300 with a team-leading nine runs batted in. However, manager Don Mattingly decided on a platoon at second base with Justin Turner and Dee Gordon.

The Dodgers figure to push Zack Greinke to the active roster for their North American series opener in San Diego.

When his teammates headed Down Under, Greinke stayed behind nursing a strained right calf.

Greinke is slated to start Thursday in the Freeway Series opener against the Angels.

Jose Dominguez and Chris Withrow are the likely candidates to be optioned to the minor leagues to clear the way for Greinke.
