The Colorado Rockies activated first baseman C.J. Cron (back) from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday in advance of the team's game against the San Diego Padres.

Cron, a career .259 hitter with 123 home runs and 388 RBIs in his eighth season, is hitting .290 with five homers and 15 RBIs through 29 games in 2021 and was riding a hot streak when he was placed on the IL.

Over his prior 15 games (13 starts), Cron had a slash line of .388/.474/.714 with all five homers and 12 RBIs.

The team optioned RHP Antonio Santos to Triple-A Albuquerque following Monday night's game. Santos appeared in two games this season, allowing a run in 3 2/3 innings with two strikeouts and two walks.
