DENVER (AP) The Colorado Rockies have activated outfielder Corey Dickerson from the 15-day disabled list and optioned left-hander Rex Brothers to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Dickerson will play left and bat sixth against the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

Dickerson went on the 15-day on May 19 with plantar fasciitis in his left foot and returned June 11. He returned to the DL on June 17 with the same injury after playing five games.

He is batting .299 with five home runs in 55 games.

The Rockies have 39 players on their 40-man roster.
