Schmidt returns from shoulder injury

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Joe Torre announced before Saturday's win over the Astros that right-hander Jason Schmidt, who hasn't pitched in the majors since July 16, 2007, will be activated from the 60-day disabled list on Monday night to start against Cincinnati.

The Dodgers have used 18 different starting pitchers since Schmidt, a three-time All-Star, was shut down because of shoulder problems that required surgery.

Schmidt, 36, has been in the league for 13 years. He has a career record 128-94 record with a 3.94 ERA.
