Dodgers activate IF Freese from injured list

The Los Angeles Dodgers activated infielder David Freese from the 10-day injured list on Monday and, in a corresponding move, optioned outfielder Kyle Garlick and infielder Edwin Rios to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Freese, 36, has been out since June 21 with a left hamstring strain.

In 56 games for the Dodgers this season, Freese is batting .308 with eight home runs and 23 RBIs. Before being placed on the IL, he was batting .366 (15-for-41) with four home runs and nine RBIs over 16 games in June.

Garlick made 40 plate appearances over 25 games for the Dodgers, hitting .216 with two home runs and four RBIs. The 27-year-old was drafted in the 28th round by the Dodgers in the 2015 draft out of Cal Poly Pomona. In five minor league seasons, he is batting .284 with 80 homers and 257 RBIs.

The 25-year-old Rios batted .267 (4-for-15) over eight games in his first stint with the Dodgers. He recorded one double, one triple and one RBI. The Dodgers selected Rios in the sixth round of the 2015 draft, and he is batting .293 with 78 home runs and 283 RBIs in five minor league seasons.
