The Houston Astros reinstated rookie shortstop Jeremy Pena from the 10-day injured list prior to Sunday's game against the host New York Yankees.
Pena has been sidelined with left thumb discomfort since diving to make a catch in a game in the Astros' 5-3 loss to the Texas Rangers on June 13.
Pena, 24, is batting .277 with nine homers, 27 RBIs and 27 runs in 54 games this season.
Also on Sunday, the Astros optioned outfielder Chas McCormick to Triple-A Sugar Land.
McCormick, 27, is hitting .219 with six homers and 16 RBIs in 49 games this season with the Astros.
