Rockies activate Desmond, put RHP Chatwood on 10-day DL

NEW YORK (AP) — Ian Desmond has been activated from the 10-day disabled list by the Colorado Rockies and is in the starting lineup against the New York Mets.

The versatile Desmond had been sidelined since July 3 with a strained right calf. He returned without a minor league rehab assignment, playing left field and batting fifth Sunday for the struggling Rockies, who had lost 15 of 20.

Desmond made an immediate impact his first time up, hitting a two-run single off Steven Matz with two outs in the first inning.

To open a roster spot, Colorado placed right-hander Tyler Chatwood on the 10-day DL with a right calf strain. A wild Chatwood was removed from Saturday night's start against the Mets after walking three of the five batters he faced and getting only one out. He also gave up Jay Bruce's three-run homer.
