This marks the first time that Hamilton will be back in action since fracturing his thumb Sept. 6. Although it seemed like Hamilton would miss the rest of the season, or at least be eased back into the swing of things as a pinch runner/hitter, the 27-year-old is set to complete a full-fledged comeback for Friday's series opener. Dating back to the All-Star break, he's slashed .258/.304/.354 with 14 RBI, 28 runs and 20 stolen bases in 51 games. It remains to be seen whether Hamilton will be able to join the lineup in an everyday capacity for the rest of the season.

This move comes as a relative surprise considering Hamilton was expected to miss the rest of the season, but obviously he's recovered enough to the point that the club feels safe adding him back to the active roster. Owners should be wary about Hamilton's usage moving forward though, since it seems likely that he will be fairly limited in the field just two weeks removed from fracturing his left thumb, and may only be used to pinch run for the time being. It remains to be seen how manager Bryan Price will utilize Hamilton for the rest of the 2017 season, although the 27-year-old is in the midst of another typical year, hitting .248/.299/.333 with 37 RBI and 58 stolen bases.
