Carlos Gonzalez (finger) has been cleared for live batting practice and expects to return prior to the All-Star break or right after.
Cargo had a tumor removed from his finger, but appears to be on the fast track to returning. He did experience mild discomfort while taking batting practice, but he believed that to be general soreness. It has been a disappointing season for the star outfielder, but he'll look to get back on track when he returns.ANALYST: David Kerr

At best, Dominguez can provide the long ball for desperate owners if he makes it back to the big leagues, but his batting average (career .233 BA) is hard to live with if that situation arises.
