Hendriks (elbow) was activated from the 15-day DL on Sunday. Hendriks completed a three-outing rehab assignment at Triple-A Nashville without incident, so he'll rejoin the 25-man roster for the first time since early May. The lefty owned a 8.27 ERA and 1.77 WHIP over 16.1 innings prior to landing on the DL, but his excellent 19:1 K:BB ratio hints that he may have been a victim of some unfortunate luck.
Hendriks (elbow) will come off the DL within the next two days, per manager Bob Melvin, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Hendriks has been on a rehab assignment for the last week-and-a-half, most recently tossing two innings at Triple-A Nashville on Thursday. It's unclear if he'll squeeze in one final rehab appearance, but barring a setback he'll return to the A's on Sunday or Monday.

Hendriks (elbow) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday, John Hickey of Bay Area News Group reports. Hendriks has been playing catch in recent weeks as he returns from an elbow injury and is now ready to throw off a mound. If all goes well in his bullpen session, he'll likely pitch in batting practice or a simulated game and then prepare for a rehab assignment. Barring any setbacks, the 27-year-old is still aiming for a return to Oakland's bullpen sometime in mid-June.
