Diamondbacks designated LHP Ryan Rowland-Smith for assignment.
The 31-year-old left-hander was moved to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Cody Ross who was activated from the disabled list. He appeared in six games this season, posting a 4.91 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 9/4 K/BB ratio in 7 1/3 innings. He could generate interest from other teams in need of bullpen depth.
Hanley Ramirez will return to the Dodgers starting lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Ramirez was drilled in the hand by a pitch during Wednesday's game, but x-rays came back negative and he's good to go. The superstar shortstop is hitting .281/.379/.509 with two homers, seven RBI and two stolen bases in his first 15 games.
