Barraclough (forearm) was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Double-A Harrisburg on Wednesday, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.

Barraclough was expected to be back in Washington after the All-Star break. That could still happen, though it's not clear why the team wouldn't simply leave him on a rehab assignment if the plan is to promote him soon. His 6.39 ERA in 25.1 big-league innings isn't exactly a ringing endorsement for a spot on the big-league roster, so it's possible he remains in the minors for an extended period.
