Mathis (hand) is set to meet with a specialist in Arizona next weekend once the Diamondbacks complete their ongoing road trip, Alex Simon of MLB.com reports.

Mathis has been out since Aug. 21 after fracturing his right hand when it was struck by a foul ball. Manager Torey Lovullo indicated that Mathis has begun strengthening exercises for the hand, but it's still unclear if he'll be able to return from the 10-day disabled list before the end of the regular season. More clarity on that front could arrive once Mathis is reevaluated next weekend.
