Dodgers option Yasiel Puig to minors after deadline trades

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers made a few roster moves on Tuesday before the start of their series against the Rockies to incorporate the trades they made on Monday. The most notable, as you might have heard, is Yasiel Puig getting optioned to the minors.

Josh Reddick was activated by the Dodgers, as was relief pitcher Jesse Chavez, and to make room on the active roster for Chavez the club also optioned pitcher Ross Stripling, after throwing 3⅔ innings on Sunday.

Josh Fields was also optioned to the minors, though the Dodgers didn't specify which affiliate for any of the three players sent down just yet. Safe bet is Triple-A Oklahoma City for all three. Some pregame notes from Denver:

Since getting called up from Double-A Chattanooga in June 2013, Puig has played nine total game in the minors, all with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga on rehab assignments in 2015-2016.

Rich Hill starts his Dodgers career on the disabled list, with a blister on the middle finger of his left hand. He is technically the 23rd different player on the DL for the Dodgers in 2016, a new National League record.

Reddick will wear number 11 for the Dodgers, Hill is number 44, and Chavez will wear 58.
