The Colorado Rockies reinstated second baseman Brendan Rodgers from the 10-day injured list Thursday and placed outfielder/first baseman Connor Joe on the IL.

Rogers (hamstring) hasn’t played since Sept. 18 due to a left hamstring strain. Joe went on the IL due to a right serratus strain, retroactive to Monday.

Rodgers, 26, is batting .261 with 11 home runs and 61 RBIs in 130 games. He’s in his fourth season with the Rockies after being selected No. 3 overall in the 2015 draft.

Joe, 30, has played sparingly this month, possibly due to his injury. A serratus strain typically causes pain in the chest, rib or back areas.

Joe is batting .238 with seven homers and 28 RBIs in 111 games this season.

The moves come one day after Colorado announced that outfielder Charlie Blackmon is done for the season due to a torn meniscus in his left knee. The four-time All-Star and 2017 National League batting champion is expected to undergo surgery on Monday.
