Mariners' David Phelps: Could be activated next weekend
The 30-year-old was projected to miss 2-to-3 weeks after landing on the disabled list Aug. 8 with a right elbow impingement, but after playing catch for the third consecutive day Sunday, Phelps looks bound to meet the lower end of that timetable. He's expected to resume throwing off a mound in the next couple of days, and if all goes well, Phelps would progress to a simulated game later in the week and bypass a rehab assignment in the minors. Phelps should step back in as one of the top setup men to closer Edwin Diaz once he returns from the DL.
