The Atlanta Braves reinstated second baseman Ozzie Albies from the 10-day injured list on Wednesday, the team announced.

Albies missed nearly five weeks because of a bone contusion in his right wrist.

The 23-year-old infielder was hitting .159/.196/.273 with one home run and six RBIs before he went on the injured list.

Albies won a Silver Slugger in 2019 after leading the National League with 189 hits. He was also an All-Star in 2018.

The Braves optioned infielder Johan Camargo to the club's alternate training site in a corresponding move.
