LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers activated Brett Anderson from the 60-day disabled list to start Sunday’s series finale at Dodger Stadium in a flurry of moves. Relief pitcher Josh Ravin was placed on the disabled list with a right triceps strain.

In addition, pitcher Brandon McCarthy was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right hip stiffness after exiting early on Saturday, his third straight shortened start with five walks. Brock Stewart was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City, presumably as a long man in the bullpen if needed.

To add Anderson to the 40-man roster, utility man Zach Walters was designated for assignment.

Walters was 0-for-5 in three major league games with the Dodgers this season. The switch-hitter hit .276/.326/.444 with 18 doubles, 10 home runs and four triples in 94 games for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers are still at 26 different players on the disabled list in 2016, one shy of the major league record. Ravin and McCarthy both began the season on the DL, and ae now the third and fourth Dodgers with two disabled list stints in 2016, along with Hyun-jin Ryu and Scott Van Slyke.

Ravin was recalled earlier in the week, and struck out three in two scoreless innings in his three appearances.
