The Los Angeles Dodgers are getting healthy for the stretch drive, activating left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu and infielder Juan Uribe from the disabled list Sunday.
The team announced the moves via its official Twitter account:
Dodgers activate Hyun-Jin Ryu and Juan Uribe from DL, option Carlos Frias and Miguel Rojas (eligible to return once ALB season ends Monday).

Ryu will start against the San Diego Padres on Sunday after missing more than two weeks because of a strained glute.
The 27-year-old lefty is 13-6 with a 3.28 ERA and 1.187 WHIP in 23 starts and 137.1 innings this season, striking out 122.
He finished fourth in the Rookie of the Year voting in 2013 after going 14-8 with a 3.00 ERA and 1.203 WHIP in 30 starts and 192 innings.
He also pitched seven shutout innings in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series last season against the St. Louis Cardinals, outdueling Adam Wainwright.
The 35-year-old Uribe has played exclusively at third base this season, hitting .293/.320/.411 in 81 games with 18 doubles, six homers and 35 RBI.
In his 14th big-league season, Uribe is a career .255/.300/.420 hitter in 1,612 games with the Colorado Rockies, Chicago White Sox, San Francisco Giants and the Dodgers, who he’s been with since 2011.
To make room on the 25-man active roster, right-hander Carlos Frias and infielder Miguel Rojas were optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque, but both players can return on Monday when rosters expand to 40 players.
Frias has a 5.65 ERA and 1.047 WHIP in eight appearances and 14.1 innings. Rojas is hitting .195/.259/.242 in 64 games, with one home run and eight RBI. Both players made their major league debuts this season.
