The Arizona Diamondbacks reinstated third baseman Jake Lamb from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

A 2017 All-Star, Lamb played only five games this season with Arizona before suffering a strained left quadriceps on April 3.

Lamb, 28, was 4-for-15 with a double and two RBIs with the Diamondbacks before the injury. He hit .179 (7-for-39) with one homer and seven RBIs in 12 rehab games at Triple-A Reno, where he played six games at third base and five at first.

Arizona optioned infielder Domingo Leyba to Reno to clear space on the 25-man roster.

Leyba, 23, made his major league debut on June 22 against the San Francisco Giants and singled in his first career at-bat.
