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.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
