ATLANTA — Gregory Polanco's stint on the disabled list has come to an end.

Polanco, who suffered a left hamstring strain against the Diamondbacks on May 14, was reinstated to the 25-man roster Thursday morning before the Pirates' 12:10 p.m. game against the Braves at SunTrust Park, and outfielder Danny Ortiz was optioned back to Triple-A Indianapolis to make room for him.
