Los Angeles is also expected to reinstate right-handed reliever Joel Peralta tomorrow from the 15-day disabled list (right neck sprain).

Barnes is entering his third stint with Los Angeles this season after making his MLB debut on May 24 and batting .267 (4-for-15) with a .389 on-base percentage in nine games with the Dodgers. Earlier today, the 25-year-old was selected to the All-Pacific Coast League team after batting a team-best .315 with nine home runs and 42 RBI in 81 games with Oklahoma City. The Riverside, CA, native, who was also honored as a midseason PCL All-Star, drew 35 walks, with only 36 strikeouts, while posting a .389 on-base percentage. 

Bolsinger, 27, spent most of the season in the Majors, going 5-3 with a 2.83 ERA in 16 starts during two previous stints with the Dodgers. He was optioned to Oklahoma City on July 31, where he posted a 1-3 record with a 2.93 ERA, a .186 opponents' batting average and a 1.08 WHIP in six August games (four starts) and, overall, he went 5-3 with a 2.31 ERA in 10 games (eight starts) this year with OKC. 

Thomas has gone 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in three games (one start) in four previous stints with the Dodgers and overall has posted a 4.11 combined ERA in eight big league appearances (one start) with Los Angeles and Atlanta this year. In the minors, the 28-year-old registered a 4-1 record with a 4.19 ERA in 23 combined games (six starts) with Oklahoma City and the Braves' Double-A Mississippi and Triple-A Gwinnett.

Peralta will return to the active roster tomorrow after being placed on the DL on Aug. 11 with a right neck sprain, his second stint on the disabled list this year (also: April 26-June 22). Peralta did not allow a hit and struck out three in 3.0 scoreless innings in three rehab appearances with Double-A Tulsa and has gone 2-1 with three saves and a 5.40 ERA in 25 games with the Dodgers this year.
