The Colorado Rockies placed left fielder Kris Bryant on the 10-day injured list Monday due to ongoing plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

It’s the four-time All-Star’s third stint on the IL this season after two previous stays due to back injuries.

Bryant missed the Rockies’ game July 25 with soreness in the foot and visited a specialist the following day. He returned to the lineup that night and told reporters he was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis.

Then, in Sunday’s 7-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bryant left after five innings due to left foot soreness.

Bryant is batting .306 with five homers and 14 RBIs in 42 games this season, his first in Colorado after signing a seven-year, $182 million deal in the offseason.

The 2016 National League MVP with the Chicago Cubs has hit 172 career homers in 926 games with the Cubs (2015-21), San Francisco Giants (2021) and Rockies.

In a corresponding roster move, Colorado recalled infielder Alan Trejo from Triple-A Albuquerque. The 26-year-old played in 11 games for the Rockies earlier this season, batting .231 with one home run and six RBIs.
