Los Angeles Dodgers activate Hyun-Jin Ryu, Juan Uribe from DL

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:

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.
