PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Pirates activated outfielder Bryan Reynolds from the 10-day injured list on Sunday.

Reynolds was in the starting lineup for the finale of a weekend set against Milwaukee, batting second and playing left field in his first big league game since June 19. He had been sidelined by lower back inflammation.

The 28-year-old Reynolds hit .279 with eight homers and 40 RBIs in his first 68 games this season. He finalized a $106.75 million, eight-year contract with the Pirates in April.

Pittsburgh also placed infielder Ji Hwan Bae on the 10-day IL because of a left ankle sprain. Bae got hurt during Saturday’s 11-8 loss to the Brewers.

Bae leads the Pirates with a career-high 20 steals in 76 games. He is batting .238 with two homers and 19 RBIs.

Also Sunday, right-hander Wil Crowe is slated to begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Bradenton. The reliever is on the 60-day IL because of right shoulder discomfort.
