The Colorado Rockies activated outfielder Kris Bryant from the paternity leave list Thursday after celebrating newborn twins.
Bryant’s missed the last few games after being placed on paternity leave, but he’s returning to lineup in Colorado’s season finale against San Diego.
Due to multiple circumstances, Bryant has played in just 29 of the Rockies’ 89 games this season.
The 30-year-old signed a seven-year, $182,000,000 contract with the team back in March this year.
Bryant will start in left field and bat third in Thursday afternoon’s matchup with the Padres.
The Rockies are currently fourth in the National League West with a 40-49 record, and they’re 5-5 in their last 10 games.
