Brewers activate second baseman Kolten Wong from injured list

Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Kolten Wong is back. 

As part of a myriad of roster moves ahead of Friday's game at the Colorado Rockies, the Brewers activated Wong off of the injured list and selected the contract for right-hander Zack Godley from Triple-A Nashville.

Wong immediately returned to the lineup to bat leadoff: 

The 30-year-old landed on the IL back on June 4 because of a strained left oblique he suffered the previous day. He was batting .280 with four home runs and 15 RBI at the time he was sidelined.

Godley, meanwhile, hasn't made a big-league appearance since he suffered a right index finger contusion in late April. 

Milwaukee (38-31) enters Friday night having lost four straight and in second place in the National League Central standings but only one game back of the first-place Chicago Cubs

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
