The Cincinnati Reds on Sunday activated outfielder Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list.
Activating Hamilton continued a familiar trend for the Reds (50-66), who made a roster move for the fifth time in six days.
Hamilton had been sidelined since July 12 with a sprained right wrist.
Before being injured, Hamilton was one of baseball’s feel-good stories this season. He is hitting .279 with 14 homers and 30 RBI in 55 games.
Hamilton, 26, was selected first overall by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 1999. However, he had his career derailed by drugs before joining the Reds this season.
To make room for Hamilton, the Reds designated infielder Mark Bellhorn for assignment. He went 1-for-6 in six games since being recalled from the minors.
