The Arizona Diamondbacks activated outfielder Kole Calhoun off the 10-day injured list prior to Friday’s game against the visiting Cincinnati Reds.

The 33-year-old Calhoun underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee on March 3.

Arizona optioned infielder/outfielder Andrew Young to the alternate training site after Thursday’s game against the Colorado Rockies to clear the roster spot.

Calhoun batted .226 with 16 homers and 40 RBIs in 54 games last year during the 60-game shortened season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Overall, Calhoun has a .248 career average with 156 homers and 491 RBIs in 1,020 games. He spent seven-plus seasons with the Los Angeles Angels before signing as a free agent with the Diamondbacks prior to the 2020 season.
