Markakis was reinstated Monday after going on the DL June 1, retroactive to May 30, with a right hamate bone fracture. It was the first time in his career that Markakis was put on the DL.

Markakis batted .300 with a double and two home runs in three rehab games with Double-A Bowie.

Mahoney made his major league debut Saturday against the Angels, going 0-for-3.
