Justin Sellers has officially become the 46th member of the 2011 Los Angeles Dodgers, replacing the disabled Dee Gordon. Sellers is making his major-league debut tonight.

Sellers, 25, has a .400 on-base percentage and .537 slugging percentage for Triple-A Albuquerque this season, after going ..371/.497 in 2010. His road OPS this season, however, is .668.

Elsewhere:
  • Chris Reed's deal with the Dodgers was made official today, and he'll be introduced to fans at the ballpark tonight. Here's the newbie.
  • Former Dodger Mike Marshall (the second) and former Angel Tony Phillips brawled, and Steve Dilbeck of the Times has posted video.
  • Just when you least expect it, a Ronald Belisario update, from Evan Bladh at Opinion of Kingman's Performance.
  • Good news on the health front from fellow baseball writer Dave Cameron, accompanied by the best Win Probability chart ever.
  • For any of you with kids or interested in a fun animated show, I'll be moderating a panel on the Disney Channel series "Fish Hooks" on Saturday at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills. That panel's preceded by one on "Phineas and Ferb," moderated by my former Variety colleague Michael Schneider.
