Travis Ishikawa, who is currently on the disabled list with a lower back strain, could rejoin the Pirates as early as Monday.

In a corresponding move, Jordy Mercer has been activated from the 15-day DL. Ishikawa has appeared in 33 games for the Bucs this season, slashing .222/.311/.333 with one homer and eight RBI in 54 at-bats. He should return in early September.

Travis Ishikawa's big night led to a win against the Royals, as he went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, and four RBI.

Ishikawa doubled in two runs in the second inning to push the Pirates' lead to 4-1, then slugged a two-run home run in the fifth to make it a 7-2 game at the time. The veteran has played in only 16 major league games this year, but it was his first multi-hit and multi-RBI game of the season.

Pirates claimed 1B/OF Travis Ishikawa off waivers from the Giants.

Ishikawa was actually the Pirates' Opening Day first baseman last season but didn't last with the club for long. The veteran has spent almost all of 2015 at Triple-A, batting .271/.342/.421 with four homers over 34 games. He'll give the Pirates a backup option at first base and the corner outfield spots.

Giants designated 1B/OF Travis Ishikawa for assignment.

It's the second time since late May that he's been removed from the 40-man roster. Ishikawa, who is hitless in just six at-bats for the Giants this season, will likely declare free agency if he clears waivers and is outrighted.

Giants purchased the contract of 1B/OF Travis Ishikawa from Triple-A Sacramento.

Ishikawa was designated for assignment by the Giants at the end of May, but he passed through waivers unclaimed and is now getting another shot in San Francisco. Last year's NLCS hero probably won't carry any sort of fantasy value, though he may see some starts in the outfield while Nori Aoki (leg) is sidelined.

Giants sent 1B/OF Travis Ishikawa outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Ishikawa has decided to accept the assignment and remain in the organization. Last season's NLCS hero provides the Giants with some solid depth.

Travis Ishikawa (back) suffered a setback during his rehab assignment.

He's in San Francisco to receive treatment on the back, and no new timetable has been established for his return. It was expected to be a short stay on the disabled list for Ishikawa, but this obviously throws a wrench in those plans.
