The Colorado Rockies reinstated All-Star shortstop Trevor Story from the 10-day injured list before Tuesday night’s game against the visiting Houston Astros.
Story, 26, went on the IL on June 20 with a right thumb strain. He was 2-for-6 in two rehab appearances this weekend with Triple-A Albuquerque.
Story is batting .294 with 17 homers, 48 RBIs, 65 runs and 12 stolen bases in 72 games this season. He was named to his second straight All-Star team.
In a corresponding move, the Rockies optioned right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez to Albuquerque.
Gonzalez, 27, was 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA in two starts for Colorado.
