The Dodgers have activated outfielder Yasiel Puig from the 15-day disabled list, MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick reports. Outfielder Scott Schebler was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City to clear room on the roster.

Puig hasn’t played since April 24 due to a strained left hamstring. He was expected to return earlier, but suffered a setback in mid-May. Puig, 24, was hitting .279/.380/.465 with two home runs and four RBI in 50 plate appearances prior to the injury.

Puig is in the Dodgers’ starting lineup for Saturday night’s home game against the Cardinals.
