He's running well again, and he's showing up for every pitch and getting after it. "We've been very open with Jose that while we hope his return to the big leagues is with us, he's a guy that may need to get somebody else's attention and have somebody come get him back to the big leagues. If that happens, we'll be happy for him, but if it happens here, that's great for us as well." In addition, Justin Sellers was transferred to the 60-day DL.
