Ahead of Wednesday night’s game against the Diamondbacks, the Dodgers activated outfielder Yasiel Puig from the 10-day disabled list. He’s in the starting lineup, batting seventh against D-Backs starter Patrick Corbin.

Puig, 27, hasn’t played since late April due to hip and foot injuries. He’s had a sluggish start, batting .193/.250/.250 in 96 trips to the plate.

The corner outfield had been handled mostly by Alex Verdugo and Matt Kemp with Tim Locastro and Joc Pederson manning center field. Kemp is in left field and Enrique Hernandez is in center Wednesday night.
