The Arizona Diamondbacks activated third baseman Eric Chavez from the disabled list on Friday after he had been sidelined since the end of May with a strained right oblique.
Chavez, 35, is hitting .325 with seven homers in 38 games this season, almost exclusively against right-handed pitching.
To make room on the roster, the Diamondbacks designated Eric Hinske for assignment. Hinske, 35, is hitting just .173.
