The Los Angeles Dodgers activated pitcher Michael Grove from the injured list and the rookie right-hander is set to start Saturday’s game against the visiting New York Yankees.

To make room on the active roster, left-hander Justin Bruihl was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Grove was 0-1, 8.44 ERA in four starts this season but has been out since April 21 with a strained right groin. The 26-year-old is making just his 11th career start and first against the Yankees.

The Dodgers opened a rotation spot earlier this week when rookie right-hander Gavin Stone was optioned to Oklahoma City after posting a 14.40 ERA over three starts.

Bruihl, 25, has a 4.41 ERA in 14 appearances for the Dodgers this season. In 59 appearances (two starts) for Los Angeles over parts of three seasons, Bruihl is 2-2 with a 3.68 ERA.
