LOS ANGELES — Outfielder is returning from the 60-day disabled list for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Dodgers reinstated the four-time All-Star on Tuesday before their game in Atlanta.

They optioned right-hander to Triple-A Oklahoma City to make room.

Crawford has been out since April 28, missing 75 games after tearing an oblique muscle on his right side. He played in 10 minor league games during his rehabilitation, batting .368 for Oklahoma City.

Manager says Crawford is likely to be a reserve in his return to the NL West leaders, occasionally filling in for in left field or in right.

Crawford is in the fifth season of his seven-year, $142 million contract.

Los Angeles also designated right-hander Preston Guilmet for assignment.
