Dodgers activate A.J. Ellis, option Austin Barnes to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

PHILADELPHIA — The Dodgers activated A.J. Ellis from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. Ellis hasn’t played since July 19 because of pain in his right knee. Austin Barnes, roundly hugged in the Dodgers’ clubhouse after Sunday’s win over the Angels, was predictably optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Barnes appeared in four games in his latest major league stint. He had three hits in 12 plate appearances.

Yasmani Grandal, not Ellis, will catch Alex Wood‘s Dodgers debut today against the Philadelphia Phillies.
