Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) will throw a simulated game on Monday.
If that goes well, he'll then report to High-A Visalia where he'll begin a minor league rehab assignment. It's taken De La Rosa three months to recover from a sprained UCL. He opted for rehab instead of Tommy John surgery after consulting with Dr. James Andrews. The right-hander should be back for the final few weeks of the regular season.
Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said A.J. Pollock (elbow) will play two out of every three games when he returns from the disabled list on Friday.
Pollock is expected to make his season debut Friday against the Reds after missing the first five months of the year with a fractured elbow. The 28-year-old was an absolute monster for the D'Backs in 2015 and looked sharp during his minor league rehab assignment. Even if he only plays four or five times a week, Pollock will still be a worthy investment for fantasy owners.
Chase Utley (foot) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday against the Giants.
Utley's been bothering him lately so he'll get the night off on Thursday. Charlie Culbertson will handle second base in his stead while hitting ninth against Giants southpaw Matt Moore. Utley, who will soon be reunited with former Phillies backstop Carlos Ruiz, is day-to-day.
Dodgers activated INF/OF Rob Segedin from the paternity leave list.
He was only gone for about 24 hours. Segedin will handle right field and bat seventh in Thursday's series finale against the Giants. The 27-year-old utility man has hit a respectable .286 with two homers and 12 RBI since joining the Dodgers earlier this month.
Diamondbacks recalled RHP Silvino Bracho from Triple-A Reno.
Bracho has put on the frequent flyer miles this year with his repeated trips from Reno to Phoenix. He hasn't had the year he was hoping for after pitching well at the end of last season. The right-hander holds a lackluster 6.75 ERA in 15 games for the Snakes in 2016.
