Hunter Dozier (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Wilmington.

Dozier has been out all season after suffering a Grade 2 strain of his oblique during spring training. He's on the 60-day disabled list and will likely be optioned to Triple-A Omaha once he's back to full health.

Trevor Story (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday.

Rockies manager Bud Black passed along the news during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM. Story, out since May 11 with a left shoulder strain, went 3-for-11 (.273) with a homer over four games during his minor league rehab assignment. The 24-year-old was batting just .180/.289/.396 through 33 games prior to the injury, but the power has still been there and he obviously plays half of his games in a great park for offense.

Rockies manager Bud Black said during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Tuesday that Jon Gray (foot) is "three weeks away from pitching for us."

This matches up with a recent prediction from Rockies' beat writer Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. Gray suffered a stress fracture in his left foot last month and has been throwing despite being in a boot. His recovery is taking longer than originally anticipated, but the Rockies have managed to put together the best record in the NL without him. They'll happily welcome him back, of course.

Tommy Hunter (calf) is slated to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Charlotte.

Hunter should only need a couple of appearances before rejoining the Rays. The veteran reliever has been sidelined for a month due to a right calf strain. He had a 1.08 ERA over 10 appearances prior to the injury.

Rockies re-signed 1B/OF Stephen Cardullo to a minor league contract.

Cardullo was released over the weekend, but the two sides quickly worked out a new deal. The 29-year-old is expected to miss at least a couple of months after recently undergoing wrist surgery. Cardullo has appeared in 42 games with the Rockies over the past two seasons.
May 23 - 9:30 AM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 0-for-3 and caught six innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

D'Arnaud is now 5-for-17 (.294) during his minor league rehab assignment while working his back from a bone bruise in his wrist. He's set to catch Steven Matz (elbow) on Tuesday, but he could be cleared to rejoin the Mets after that. The question is how the playing time will shake out with Rene Rivera, who has been surprisingly productive at the plate. D'Arnaud was batting .203/.288/.475 with four home runs an 16 RBI over 22 games prior to the injury.

Archie Bradley turned in another scoreless appearance Monday night against the White Sox.

Bradley relieved Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke with two outs in the top of the ninth inning and induced a groundout from Avisail Garcia to seal Arizona's 5-1 victory. The former top prospect has been excellent in a dynamic relief role for the Diamondbacks this season, with a 1.35 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, and 27/5 K/BB ratio over 13 appearances covering 20 innings.
May 23 - 12:34 AM

Zack Greinke held the White Sox to one run over 8 2/3 innings Monday in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 win.

Greinke nearly had a complete game, but manager Torey Lovullo lifted the right-hander after Jose Abreu doubled with two outs in the top of the ninth. Greinke was brilliant, yielding just four hits and striking out 12 batters against just one walk. He's now 6-2 on the year with a 2.82 ERA and he leads all National League pitchers in strikeouts with 78. A road start against the Brewers is next.
