The Atlanta Braves reinstated All-Star second baseman Ozzie Albies from the 10-day injured list on Monday.

Albies, 26, was sidelined with a strained left hamstring.

The Braves also recalled right-hander Darius Vines, and optioned LHP Jared Shuster and INF Vaughn Grissom to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Albies is batting .267 with 28 homers, 90 RBIs and 11 stolen bases in 117 games this season. The three-time All-Star is a career .270 hitter with 126 homers and 436 RBIs in 741 games with the Braves since 2017.

Atlanta had recalled Grissom to replace Albies on the active roster.

Vines’ first appearance will mark his major league debut. The 25-year-old is 2-2 with a 2.70 ERA in nine starts across three levels this season, including Triple-A. The Braves selected him in the seventh round of the 2019 draft.

Shuster, 25, is 4-3 with a 5.26 ERA in 10 starts for the Braves.
