The San Diego Padres reinstated shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. and first baseman Eric Hosmer from the injured list, the club announced Wednesday.

Both players will be in the lineup to face the Colorado Rockies.

Tatis hasn't played since May 9 due to a positive COVID-19 test, while Hosmer last suited up May 11 after contracting the virus.

San Diego's offense will get a big boost with the duo returning. The two have combined to hit 13 home runs with 35 RBIs this season.

Tucupita Marcano and John Andreoli were optioned to Triple-A to make room on the active major-league roster.
