Axford (shoulder) will be activated Saturday or Sunday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports Friday.

Axford has been solid in three rehab appearances over the course of the week, so now it just comes down to when it will be convenient for the Athletics to make the roster move to get him back to the majors. They may choose to give Axford a couple days to rest, so don't be surprised if they wait until Sunday to officially activate the reliever.
