Carlos Gonzalez has been reinstated from the bereavement list by the Colorado Rockies.
The All-Star slugger was set to bat cleanup and play left field Wednesday night against the New York Mets. He missed the previous three games to go home to Venezuela following the death of his grandfather.
To make room for Gonzalez, the Rockies sent right-hander Guillermo Moscoso to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Manager Jim Tracy says Moscoso will return to the majors when active rosters expand to 40 in September.
In other news, star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (groin surgery) and backup first baseman Jason Giambi (viral syndrome) are scheduled to begin rehab assignments Friday with Double-A Tulsa. Tracy says neither player will be back before September.
