Fuentes went 4-for-5 with three doubles and a pair of runs for Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.
The 26-year-old is in a nice groove at the plate for the Isotopes, as he's now 6-for-9 with a homer and four RBI over his last two games, boosting his Triple-A slash line up to .276/.333/.455. He got a brief run at the big-league level earlier this season and went just 2-for-18 before being optioned back to Albuquerque.
Fuentes has been optioned back to Triple-A Albuquerque, the Rockies announced Thursday.
Fuentes will go back to Albuquerque amid a flurry of roster moves the Rockies made Thursday that included the activation of David Dahl (oblique). The 26-year-old had two hits in 18 at-bats during his stint with the big club.
Fuentes is in the lineup, playing first base and hitting sixth for Colorado's game against the Braves on Monday.
Fuentes has made two pinch-hit appearances since he was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque, ripping his first big-league hit in one of them, and he'll draw his first start of the campaign on Monday against Braves starter Julio Teheran. Fuentes put up excellent numbers in Triple-A last season, slashing .327/.354/.517 over 551 at-bats, and is healthy after working his way back from a hand injury during spring training.

Fuentes spent spring training recovering from hand surgery in February but makes his way to the majors with Daniel Murphy (finger) and Ryan McMahon (elbow) now on the injured list. The 26-year-old slashed .327/.354/.517 at Albuquerque last season and should serve as corner-infield depth for the Rockies.

Fuentes is still recovering from surgery on his hamate bone, though he wasn't likely to break camp with the big-league team even before the procedure. He'll bide his time at the Triple-A level, where he hit a strong .327/.354/.517 last season.
Fuentes will miss 4-to-6 weeks after undergoing surgery on the hamate bone in his left hand Wednesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear how the injury was incurred, but it's a big blow to the corner infield prospect who posted a terrific season at Triple-A Albuquerque last season. Thankfully, it seems that Fuentes could return to game action before the end of spring training if all goes as planned, though a more concrete return date won't come into focus until he progresses in his rehab program.
Fuentes joined Colorado's 40-man roster Tuesday.
Fuentes advanced to Triple-A Albuquerque in 2018, slashing .327/.354/.517 with 14 home runs and 95 RBI over 135 games. Given his evident potential, it makes sense that the Rockies have elected to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.
