Dodgers call up Tim Federowicz

Posted September 6, 2011

— Former Tar Heel backstop Tim Federowicz became the fifth Tar Heel in 2011 to earn a call up to the big leagues on Tuesday when the Los Angeles Dodgers selected his contract from AAA Albuquerque. With the call up of Federowicz there are now nine former Tar Heels on 40-man rosters, which is tied for the sixth-most of any school in the country.

Federowicz was part of a three-team trade at the July 31 trading deadline that resulted in the Tar Heel catcher making the move to the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.

Upon his arrival Federowicz was assigned to triple A Albuquerque where he played in 25 games over the final month of the season and hit .325 with 17 runs, six home runs and 17 RBI for the Isotopes.

With the conclusion of Albuquerque's season on Monday the Dodgers selected Federowicz' contract on Tuesday to provide catching help for the final month of the regular season.

Federowicz becomes the ninth Tar Heel on a team's 40-man roster as Carolina is now tied with Texas with the sixth-most Major League players in the country.
