Trevor Rosenthal is having his elbow scans reviewed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

Rosenthal already paid a visit to Dr. George Paletta in St. Louis and now he'll receive a second opinion on the state of his pitching arm from ElAttrache in Los Angeles. Those two physicians -- both famous for performing Tommy John surgeries -- will then collaborate to determine the next step, per MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch. Rosenthal landed on the disabled list last Thursday with what is being called right posterior elbow irritation. The final diagnosis could be far worse.

Carlos Correa (thumb) is on track to begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

Correa took on-field batting practice Tuesday without issue and he'll go through a full pregame workout on Wednesday before likely meeting up with the Astros' Double-A team the following day. The young shortstop expects to be ready to return to Houston's active roster after 20-30 at-bats in the minors. He's been on the disabled list since mid-July because of a torn ligament in his left thumb.

Paul Blackburn was lifted from his start Tuesday against the Orioles after taking a comebacker off his right (throwing) arm.

Blackburn looked to be in serious pain as he headed into the visitors dugout at Camden Yards. He had worked four scoreless innings against the host Orioles. Look for an update soon.

Will Harris (shoulder) worked a 1-2-3 inning in his rehab debut Tuesday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

Harris needed just seven pitches to get through the scoreless, hitless frame. The 32-year-old right-hander will probably make one or two more appearances in the minors before returning to the Astros' bullpen. He boasts a 2.86 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 39/5 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings this season at the major league level.

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) looked only "OK" in his bullpen session Monday.

"He’ll probably throw another bullpen," Servais told reporters after the workout. "We’re running out of time. Guys have to be able to ramp it up pretty quickly to have any chance to make an impact for us down the stretch ... Last time, Kuma got to this point, then he got to the simulated game, we put a hitter in there, and it was like, `Whoa, this isn’t even close.’ It didn’t feel good." The veteran right-hander has been out since early May and there is no timetable for him to embark on a minor league rehab assignment. He might not make it back this year.

Austin Slater (hip) expects to begin playing in rehab games in 10-14 days.

Most of the Giants' minor league affiliates will have concluded their seasons by then, but that's not a major issue as the organization figures to play things cautiously with the 24-year-old outfielder. He can play in simulated games in Arizona if need be. There's no guarantee Slater will return to San Francisco in 2017.
Aug 22 - 8:01 PM

Johnny Cueto (forearm) is expected to go three innings Tuesday night at Triple-A Sacramento.

Cueto was supposed to resume his minor league rehab assignment on Monday, but he came down with a minor illness so the Giants pushed him back one day. Cueto will probably need to stretch out to six innings in the minors before the out-of-contention Giants activate him off the disabled list. He's been out since mid-July.

Keone Kela (shoulder) remains shut down from throwing.

Kela has been bothered by shoulder discomfort since late June and he landed back on the disabled list August 8, retroactive to August 5, after yet another flareup. It's beginning to look like he might not return this season.
