The Los Angeles Dodgers activated outfielder Cody Bellinger and infielder/outfielder Zach McKinstry from the injured list on Saturday in time for their home game against the San Francisco Giants.

In corresponding moves, the team optioned outfielder DJ Peters and infielder/outfielder Sheldon Neuse to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Bellinger, 25, has been out since April 5, missing 46 games since he suffered a hairline fracture in his left leg during a game against the Oakland Athletics. He appeared in five games in a rehab stint in Oklahoma City and was 4-for-20 with two home runs and three RBIs.

In four games with the Dodgers this season, Bellinger is hitting .211 with no home runs and two RBIs. In 510 career games — all with the Dodgers — the 2019 NL MVP and two-time All-Star has hit .273 with 99 doubles, 123 home runs and 320 RBIs.

McKinstry, 26, missed 33 games since he suffered a right oblique strain in a game on April 20. A rookie who played seven games for Los Angeles in 2020, McKinstry is hitting .296 with three home runs and 14 RBIs in 17 games with the Dodgers this season.

He hit .316 with two doubles and three walks in five rehab games for Oklahoma City.

Peters, 25, appeared in 18 games for the Dodgers, batting .192 with two doubles, one homer and four RBIs. Neuse, 26, hit .172 with three homers and four RBIs in 28 games for the Dodgers.
