C. Kuhl - SP
Kuhl played catch Friday for the first time since suffering a strained forearm back in late June, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.
If Kuhl progresses without setbacks, the team believes he'll be able to return to action sometime in September. Prior to the injury, the 25-year-old struggled to a 4.55 ERA in 16 starts.

R. Rosario - RP
Rosario was recalled by the Cubs on Friday.
Mike Montgomery hit the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, bringing Tyler Chatwood back to the rotation and Rosario up to fill Chatwood's long-relief role. The lefty has a solid 3.00 ERA in 33 major-league innings this season, but the underlying numbers don't paint such a pretty picture. He's struck out just 14.8 percent of batters while walking 13.4 percent, leading to a 5.58 FIP.

H. Musgrave - RP
Musgrave was sent down to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Musgrave was cast off the active roster in order to make room for Scott Oberg, who was reinstated from the paternity list in a corresponding move. Through 24 appearances in the big leagues this year, Musgrave has logged a pedestrian 5.08 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with a 23:17 K:BB across 33.2 innings of relief.

E. Encarnación - DH
Encarnacion (biceps) is taking swings in the cage Friday and may resume normal batting practice Sunday or Monday, T.J. Zuppe of The Athletic Cleveland reports.
Encarnacion is apparently feeling no symptoms in his biceps and only slight symptoms in his hand, but Francona indicated the likelihood of a minimal stay on the disabled list was "questionable." The 35-year-old is eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday in Boston, which will likely depend how his biceps and hand respond to his increased swing loads over the weekend.

S. Oberg - RP
Oberg was activated from paternity leave prior to Friday's game against the Braves, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Oberg will rejoin the active roster after missing the past couple games due to the birth of his child. Across 35 appearances this season, Oberg has logged a 3.12 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. In a corresponding move, Harrison Musgrave was optioned to the minors.

A. Judge - RF
Manager Aaron Boone said Judge (wrist) was able to play catch and could begin taking dry swings prior to Friday's game, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
If Judge is able to resume swinging Friday, or even sometime within the next couple days, there remains a chance that he could return to the fold before the end of August. Just playing catch was a big step forward for the outfielder, especially considering he received a cortisone shot in the wrist earlier this week due to some lingering discomfort. Once he's able to begin taking real cuts, a better idea of his eventual return will come into view.

T. Chatwood - RP
Chatwood will return to the rotation for a spot start Saturday in Pittsburgh, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
Chatwood pitched himself out of the rotation in late July after walking 85 batters in 94 innings. he hasn't looked any better in three relief outings, walking five in 5.2 innings and posting a 6.35 ERA. He'll be called on to fill in for Mike Montgomery, who hit the disabled list with shoulder inflammation Friday.

J. Andreoli - RF

Andreoli was sent down to Triple-A Tacoma just after the All-Star break, and has made three appearances with the Mariners the since. The 28-year-old has a .287/.397/.401 slash line in 89 games with the Rainiers and will now be subjected to waivers.
