LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers purchased the contract of right-hander Jeff Weaver from Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, optioned infielder Blake DeWitt to their Pacific Coast League club and activated right-hander Cory Wade from the 15-day disabled list.

This is Weaver’s second stint with the Dodgers. He pitched for them during the 2004 and 2005 seasons, going 27-24 with a 4.11 ERA in 68 starts. He will be reunited with Joe Torre, who was his manager with the New York Yankees in 2002-03.

To make room for Weaver on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers transferred first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz from the 15-day to the 60-day DL. Mientkiewicz has been sidelined since April 17 because of a dislocated right shoulder.
