Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Eric Chavez was reinstated from the disabled list Friday, and in a corresponding move the team designated veteran infielder Eric Hinske for assisgnment.

Chavez, who was placed on the DL with a minor tear of his right oblique muscle June 2, played in three rehab games at Triple-A Reno, going 2-for-8 (.250) with two walks.

Before suffering his injury May 30 against the Texas Rangers, Chavez was hitting .325 with seven home runs and 25 RBI in 38 games.

Hinske, who signed a one-year deal with the D-backs back in December 2012, batted .173 with one home run and six RBI before Friday's release.
