The Los Angeles Dodgers optioned infielder Micah Johnson to Triple-A Oklahoma City Monday. The Dodgers are expecting to have Howie Kendrick back Tuesday for the home opener at Dodger Stadium, MLB .com reported.
Johnson was recalled over the weekend when Carl Crawford was placed on the 15-day disabled list with lower back pain. He failed to get a hit in three at-bats against the San Francisco Giants.
Yasmani Grandal is expected to return Tuesday as well.
