DENVER (AP) — Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was activated from the 15-day disabled list after missing 35 games because of left index finger inflammation.

To make room for Gonzalez, who was in the starting lineup for Friday night's interleague game against Minnesota, the Rockies optioned right-handed pitcher Jair Jurrjens to their Triple-A affiliate in Colorado Springs.

Gonzalez has been sidelined since June 3 and underwent surgery on the finger a week later after doctors discovered a benign tumor. Before rejoining the Rockies, Gonzalez made four rehab appearances with Colorado Springs earlier this week.

Jurrjens was 0-1 with a 10.61 ERA in two starts for the Rockies.
