LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers made their first wave of September additions on Friday before their weekend series against the Padres at Dodger Stadium, activating pitchers Louis Coleman and Josh Ravin from the disabled list and recalling Austin Barnes and Josh Fields from Triple-A Oklahoma City, in addition to the previously-reported recall of Yasiel Puig.

Barnes is the third catcher on the 40-man roster along with Yasmani Grandal and Carlos Ruiz, and this is his fourth stint with the major league team this season. Barnes is 3-for-23 (.130) with a double and three walks in 14 games with the Dodgers this season, including three starts at catcher and two at second base.

The 26-year-old Barnes hit .295/.380/.443 with 22 doubles, six home runs and five triples in 85 games for Oklahoma City, and stole 18 bases in 21 attempts.

Coleman missed 27 games with right shoulder fatigue. He pitched in four games on a minor league rehab assignment, one in the Arizona rookie league and three with Triple-A Oklahoma City, allowing only an unearned run with six strikeouts and no walks.

The 30-year-old right-hander has a 3.70 ERA in a career-high 50 games — Coleman is one of six Dodgers pitchers to appear in 50 games in 2016 — with 37 strikeouts and 16 walks in 41⅓ innings.

Ravin was placed on the DL on Aug. 14 with right triceps soreness and missed 17 games. He pitched in one minor league rehab game, on Tuesday with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, allowing a run in one inning, with one strikeout. Ravin has pitched three games in relief for the Dodgers this season, throwing two scoreless innings with three strikeouts and two walks.

Fields, who was acquired from the Astros on Aug. 1, has a 4.66 ERA in 11 relief appearances so far with the Dodgers, with 11 strikeouts and three walks in 9⅔ innings. The right-hander was optioned to Triple-A on Aug. 23, and Friday marked the first day he was eligible to return to the majors. He pitched in two games for Oklahoma City, allowing a pair of runs in two innings.

Luis Avilan, who was the Dodgers’ 26th man for the second game of their doubleheader on Wednesday in Colorado, was returned to Triple-A Oklahoma City after the game. He will be eligible to return to the majors on Sunday, after his Aug. 25 optional assignment lasts 10 days.

With these moves, the Dodgers have 30 players on their active roster — 15 position players and 15 pitchers.
