 PHOENIX (AP) -The Arizona Diamondbacks activated third baseman Chad Tracy from the disabled list Sunday.
Tracy, who had been out since May 16 with a sore left ribcage, batted cleanup in the finale of a three-game series against Boston.
Tracy's return creates a potential dilemma for manager Bob Melvin. Rookie Mark Reynolds, promoted from Double-A Mobile to replace Tracy, is hitting .321 with four homers and 15 RBIs in 23 games. And he has performed capably in the field.
Tracy, who is hitting .311 with one homer and 14 RBIs in 31 games, can also play first base. But putting Tracy at first would force Melvin to bench Conor Jackson, who has raised his batting average to .280 after a slow start.
``We'll do the best we can,'' Melvin said. ``You want to keep everybody involved, yet you still have to run your best lineup out there. So if someone gets their feelings hurt because they're not playing much, that can be the bad side of it.''
In a corresponding move, the Diamondbacks optioned utility man Robby Hammock to Triple-A Tucson. Hammock hit .237 with no homers and no RBIs in 28 games.
``We're not getting enough at-bats for him, basically,'' Melvin said. ``Can he play here? Absolutely.''
