As I reported on my blog last week, relief pitcher Esmalin Caridad is expected to have a rehab start tonight for Iowa Cubs and if everything goes well he could be activated from the DL next week sometime.
He was pitching in Arizona for extended spring training but only pitch 1.1 innings giving up just 2 walks. His fastball has been good but can't find the strike zone anymore like he did in spring training.
I think he will be activated next week and Jeff Gray will be sent down.
If he does pitch today and I have time, I will have an update of what and how he did.
