The Colorado Rockies reinstated Chad Kuhl from the 15-day injured list and designated fellow right-hander Robert Stephenson for assignment Thursday.
Kuhl, 29, landed on the IL with a right hip flexor strain on Aug. 5. He is scheduled to start Friday night’s game against the host New York Mets.
Kuhl is 6-7 with a 5.16 ERA in 20 starts this season, his first with Colorado after playing with the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2016-21.
Stephenson, 29, made 45 relief appearances for the Rockies this season and went 2-1 with a 6.04 ERA. He gave up three runs on three hits in two innings in Wednesday’s 16-4 loss to the Texas Rangers.
