(TSX / STATS) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers reinstated right-hander Chris Hatcher from the 10-day disabled list Sunday after he missed 42 games due to a thoracic inflammation.

Hatcher, 32, was sidelined since late June. He last pitched on Wednesday for the Triple-A Oklahoma City, allowing just one hit and striking out one in an inning of relief.

In five rehab games (two starts) with Oklahoma City and rookie-level Arizona, Hatcher posted a 1.50 ERA over six innings, striking out nine against just one walk.

Hatcher is 0-1 with a 4.66 ERA over 36 2/3 innings in 26 relief appearances for the Dodgers, with 43 strikeouts against 12 walks.

In a corresponding move, the Dodgers optioned catcher/infielder Kyle Farmer to Triple-A.

The 26-year-old Farmer, who made his major League debut on July 30, appeared in 10 games with the Dodgers, batting .400 (4-for-10) with a double and two RBIs.
