LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers activated Rich Hill from the disabled list on Tuesday to make his start against the Giants, and to make room on the active roster left-handed relief pitcher Grant Dayton to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Dayton has a 5.25 ERA and 5.18 FIP in 14 games this season, with nine strikeouts and six walks in 12 innings. The left-hander allowed two runs in one inning in Monday’s loss to the Giants, including a home run to Buster Posey.

After missing 10 days with an intercostal strain in April, Dayton has allowed seven runs in 5⅔ innings, including two home runs, in seven appearances.

Hill is back after missing a month with a blister on his left middle finger, his second stint on the DL this season for said blister. Hill also had blister troubles in 2016, missing seven weeks in July and August with the A’s and Dodgers, then later had two starts skipped in August and September as a precaution.

In two starts this season, Hill has a 3.38 ERA in eight innings, with seven strikeouts and five walks.
