The Rockies activated Blackmon (not injury related) from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday.

Blackmon was late to summer camp while he completed his quarantine process in his home in Georgia following his positive test for COVID-19 in late June, but his inclusion on the Rockies' 30-man Opening Day roster implies the team is now comfortable with where he stands on the health front. The 34-year-old concluded summer camp by appearing in back-to-back games Tuesday and Wednesday and should be ready to handle an everyday role when the Rockies open the regular season Friday in Texas.
