The Los Angeles Dodgers activated third baseman Justin Turner from the injured list Tuesday a day after infielder/outfielder Miguel Vargas was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Turner, 37, has played in just one game since July 22 while dealing with rib cage discomfort. He was finally placed in the IL Aug. 2 with an abdominal strain.
The veteran is batting .257 with eight home runs and 54 RBIs in 86 games this season. He is a career .288 hitter with a .738 OPS and 159 home runs with 636 RBIs in 1,351 games over 14 seasons with the Baltimore Orioles (2009-10), New York Mets (2010-13) and Dodgers.
Vargas, 22, made his major league debut on Wednesday and went 2-for-8 with two RBIs in two games.
