Oswaldo Arcia (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.
He shouldn't need more than a few games before being activated. Arcia is still feeling some discomfort in his right hip when he throws, so he's likely slated for designated hitter duty initially upon his activation from the disabled list.
David Hale will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Giants.
He'll be matched up against Yusmeiro Petit. Hale began the season on the disabled list with an oblique injury and has posted a 6.93 ERA over five Triple-A outings. He'll be sent back down after the spot start.
Ike Davis (quad) has yet to resume baseball activities.
Davis is a week removed from a Grade 2 strain in his left quad. He's going to require more than a minimum stay on the DL, although an exact timetable isn't known at this point.
Carlos Rodon's next scheduled start will be pushed back.
It's all part of the plan to limit Rodon's innings this season. Hector Noesi will start on Monday against the Blue Jays in the lefty's vacated spot. Rodon should get a start later in the week, although the White Sox haven't revealed the exact day it will happen.
Coco Crisp will not undergo surgery to repair his nagging neck injury.
Crisp revealed via social media on Thursday that he received "disheartening news" about his neck after seeing a doctor, but the plan is to treat the ailment with rest and rehab. The alternative would be a potentially career-ending operation, so it's no surprise they chose the former route. The A's haven't decided yet whether to place Crisp on the disabled list.
