By on 7/24/2014 04:00:00 AM

Plenty of rehab notes today as a number of players are getting very close to a return.


St. Louis Cardinals: activated LHP Kevin Siegrist. The 25-year-old has been on the DL for two months with a forearm strain.

Los Angeles Angels: placed INF/OF Grant Green on the 15-day DL with a lower back strain. The move made it possible for C.J. Cron to return to the roster just a few days after being optioned.


Houston Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez is dealing with hamstring soreness that led to him being pulled early last night. The team expects he will be able to play on Thursday.

Rehab roundup

Dodgers shortstop Erisbel Arruebarena was sent to the team's Arizona League affiliate to start his rehab, going 0-4 with two strikeouts as the designated hitter. Arruebarena is recovering from a hip flexor strain. Meanwhile, at Triple A Albuquerque, Chone Figgins and Scott Elbert both made appearances, Figgins going 2-3 with a double and a walk as the leadoff hitter, while Elbert pitched a scoreless inning with a strikeout.
