The San Diego Padres activated center fielder Trent Grisham off the 10-day injured list prior to Saturday afternoon’s game with the New York Mets.

Grisham (bruised left heel) last played for the Padres prior to Saturday on May 21.

The 24-year-old was batting second in Saturday’s game against the New York Mets.

San Diego optioned outfielder Brian O’Grady to Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.

Grisham batted .301 with six homers, 14 RBIs and seven steals in 36 games prior to the heel injury. The 24-year-old is also highly regarded as a defensive player and won his first Gold Glove last season.

O’Grady, 29, is batting .167 with one homer and five RBIs in 19 games for the Padres.
