Billingsley won't be on a pitch count Monday

NEW YORK -- Manager Don Mattingly said Chad Billingsley will be activated to start Monday night in St. Louis and won't be on a pitch count.

"He was good when he came in today after a bullpen and he's on schedule," said Mattingly. "He only missed one turn. He had inflammation in the elbow and we'll pay some attention to him, but there's no 60-pitch limit or anything like that. We'll just be a little cautious."

The Dodgers are likely to make room for Billingsley by optioning reliever Josh Wall back to Triple-A Albuquerque. He hasn't pitched since being called up to replace Billingsley.

In other injury news, catcher A.J. Ellis returned to the starting lineup Sunday after missing Saturday's game with left knee inflammation.
