Update: Manager Matt Williams expects Ian Desmond (thumb) to be back in the lineup on Saturday.

What is it with these thumb injuries? Luckily for Desmond, he is only battling a minor thumb issue, so he should be back in the lineup on Saturday. Assuming he makes it through the weekend without any setback, he will be able to rest it for the next several days in preparation for the second half.ANALYST: David Kerr
