As expected, the Dodgers activated Yasiel Puig from the disabled list today, with right-hander Carlos Frias returning to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Puig went 5 for 12 with a homer in five rehab games with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga last week. He and his strained left hamstring went on the disabled list June 3 with a .283 on-base percentage and .360 slugging percentage this year.

Frias did not appear in either game for which he was eligible following his Sunday promotion. The move makes it likely that Kenta Maeda will start Friday at Pittsburgh for the Dodgers on four days’ rest, followed by Clayton Kershaw and Scott Kazmir.
