Chavis (elbow) is in the lineup Thursday for Triple-A Indianapolis, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The 26-year-old has been out since Aug. 28 with an elbow strain but is expected to return to the majors soon. His rehab assignment is expected to carry through at least the weekend, setting him up to be activated at some point next week. The second baseman has appeared in six games for the Pirates this season after being acquired at the trade deadline, posting a .364 batting average with three extra-base hits in 22 at-bats.
