The Los Angeles Dodgers activated right-handed reliever Tommy Kahnle from the 10-day injured list Sunday.

Kahnle, 32, has not pitched in the majors since undergoing Tommy John surgery in August 2020.

He compiled a 2.84 ERA in eight rehab games (three starts) this season between Class-A Rancho Cucamonga and Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Kahnle will be making his Dodgers debut after compiling a 9-9 record with a 3.82 ERA in 285 relief appearances with the Colorado Rockies (2014-15), Chicago White Sox (2016-17) and New York Yankees (2017-20).

In a corresponding move, Los Angeles optioned left-hander Garrett Cleavinger to Oklahoma City prior to Sunday’s series finale with the visiting Detroit Tigers.

Cleavinger, 28, made two appearances for the Dodgers this season and posted a 5.40 ERA with no decisions.
