As Manager Don Mattingly intimated the previous day, recently acquired right-hander Kevin Correia will start for the Dodgers when they open a four-game series against the Atlanta Braves on Monday at Turner Field.
Correia was acquired Saturday night from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Correia was officially added to the Dodgers' 25-man roster on Monday. To create a place for him on the active roster, the Dodgers optioned right-hander Pedro Baez to triple-A Albuquerque.
Yasiel Puig will be back in the lineup. Puig didn’t play Sunday because Mattingly sensed he was fatigued.
Third baseman Juan Uribe will get a day off Monday. Justin Turner will start in his place.
