Liberatore was unavailable Tuesday due to a sore right knee, but is reportedly good to go for Friday's series opener against Arizona. The 29-year-old relief man gave up three earned runs in his last outing on July 24 after not giving up one in 28 straight appearances.
A little more than three weeks removed from landing on the DL, Gearrin is ready to return to active competition with the Giants' top minor league affiliate. It's uncertain how long he'll need to prepare for a return to the majors, but the team may want to see Gearrin throw on back-to-back days before activating him.
The right-hander will come up for his fourth stint with the major league club this season, taking one of the two roster spots freed up in the Andrew Cashner trade. Campos has struggled in his four appearances with San Diego, and may very well head right back down when Jarred Cosart join the team.
Hochevar reported numbness in his fingers recently and was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition caused by compression of a neurovascular bundle in the shoulder region. He saw a specialist in recent days and the first diagnosis is season-ending thoracic outlet surgery. The veteran relief man will get a second opinion but it seems highly likely that he'll undergo the knife and will miss the rest of the 2016 season.
Gant has been sidelined the last month dealing with a strained left oblique but threw a side session on July 22 with no setbacks and is now set to begin a rehab assignment. It's reported the Braves want the 23-year-old to make at least three minor league starts before being called up so a mid to late August return date seems likely. The right-hander will reassume a 4.45 ERA and 1.38 WHIP through 30.1 innings when he makes his return to the majors.
Manship's wrist tendinitis has affected his performance of late as he allowed earned runs in his two most recent outings and he gave up two home runs in his last 2.2 innings of work. Manship landing on the DL on Friday opened a spot on the active roster for Zach McAllister, who was activated in a corresponding move. There is no timetable for Manship's return at this time.
After a nearly two-week rehab assignment, the Indians were convinced that McAllister to return to the big league bullpen ahead of Friday's game against the A's. McAllister was lit up for four earned runs in his final outing before hitting the DL, which ballooned his ERA by well over a full point to 5.40. Now that he's healthy, McAllister should regain his regular role as the main seventh inning option out of the bullpen.
Schugel was sent back down in order to make room for Steven Brault, who is getting the start Friday against the Brewers. Throughout the course of the season, Schugel has been up and down between the Pirates and Indianapolis, posting a 3.86 ERA with a 1.08 WHIP over 49 innings with the big league club. The right-hander will likely be back with the Pirates in the near future.
Tolleson has had an awful month of July, allowing 12 earned runs over 8.2 innings (12.46 ERA) and as a result, will head to the Rangers Triple-A affiliate. The right-hander posted sub-three ERA's in 2014 and 2015 so there is optimism that the 28-year-old will return to his old form.
Familia blew his second straight save, also taking the loss for the second straight game, Thursday. He may be operating at fumes and seeing how he lost both saves, it's no surprise he is being given Friday off. It's still possible that Familia is used but manager Terry Collins appeared fairly strong in his view that Familia will get the mental health day.
