Juan activated, Kirk to Vegas

By Adam Rubin

DENVER -- Juan Lagares has been activated from the disabled list for Thursday's series opener against the Colorado Rockies.

Lagares replaces Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who has been optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Lagares is returning from a pulled right hamstring. He appeared in one game for Class A St. Lucie and three games with Las Vegas this week.

Terry Collins has indicated his four primary outfielders will share three starting spots.
