Federowicz was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday to make room on the roster for Mark Ellis (quad) to be activated from the DL.
Federowicz has been destroying Triple-A pitching this season, but he only recorded three hits through 17 at-bats in the majors. With A.J. Ellis and Ramon Hernandez on the roster, Federowicz was extra weight that could be shed to create room.
