The Dodgers activated outfielder Yasiel Puig from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday and optioned pitcher Carlos Frias to Triple-A Oklahoma City, the club announced.

Puig landed on the disabled list on June 3 with a strained left hamstring. It’s not clear exactly when he aggravated the injury, but it occurred around the same time he was pulled from a game for a lack of hustle.

Puig was struggling offensively, as he returns to action carrying a .237/.283/.360 triple-slash line with five home runs and 20 RBI in 198 plate appearances. He went 5-for-12 in five rehab games at Single-A Rancho Cucamonga.
