Josh Ravin allows one run in first rehab inning with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Dodgers pitcher Josh Ravin allowed one run in his only inning Tuesday in a rehab start for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Ravin allowed a double to the first batter he faced, Johnny Sewald. Sewald advanced to third base on a wild pitch and scored on a deep groundout. Later in the inning, Lancster’s Bryan Muniz missed a home run by a few feet before flying out to end the inning.

Ravin got through the inning with one earned run and one strikeout against his ledger. The right-hander is on the 15-day disabled list with right triceps soreness.

Rehabbing Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier is starting in right field for Rancho Cucamonga.

The Dodgers welcomed Brett Anderson back to the active roster, and Brock Stewart back to the major leagues, on Sunday. The two pitchers were added to the active roster for today’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

For Anderson, it’s his first major league start since Game 3 of the National League Division Series last year. For Stewart, it’s his third major league call-up of 2016. The right-hander will serve as a long reliever along with another pair of rookies, left-hander Julio Urias and right-hander Ross Stripling.

One of the Dodgers’ corresponding moves was not a surprise.

The Dodgers continued their improbable streak of success without Clayton Kershaw, battering Zach Eflin and the Philadelphia Phillies in a 9-4 win. The box score is here.

Rich Hill and Brandon McCarthy are throwing bullpen sessions tomorrow at Dodger Stadium, albeit for very different reasons.

Josh Ravin pitched a scoreless ninth inning, allowing only a triple to Cesar Hernandez in his 2016 debut. The Chatsworth native said he wants to “destroy everyone” he pitches to.

Ravin also told me after the game that his “Twitter feud” with teammate Kiké Hernandez didn’t require a “clear the air” talk. They didn’t discuss it during their mutual time at the Dodgers’ complex in Arizona earlier in the year.

“It’s just, forget about it,” Ravin said. “It never happened.”

Here’s more from the clubhouse postgame:

The Dodgers announced that Josh Ravin will miss the next 8 to 12 weeks after the right-handed pitcher underwent surgery on his broken left radius bone Tuesday.

Ravin, 28, suffered the break in a car accident Monday when he swerved into oncoming traffic on a city street in Glendale, Ariz., to avoid a collision.

Ravin is on the Dodgers’ 40-man roster and could be a candidate to go on the 60-day disabled list depending on his progress in rehab. An 8-week timetable projects to the final week of April; a 12-week timetable projects to the final week of May.
