Thompson, 26, will make his third stint with Los Angeles this season after hitting .212 with 12 doubles, six triples, nine home runs and 33 RBI in 95 games with Oklahoma City this year. Thompson has appeared in 19 games with the big league club this season, going 5-for-43 with two doubles, one triple, one home run and two RBI.

With the move, the expanded roster count now stands at 38 players.
