Gregerson (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Saturday's game against the Cubs. He has been sidelined over the first five weeks of the season with a right shoulder impingement. Gregerson should work in mid-leverage situations out of the bullpen.
Updating a previous report, the Cardinals are expected to activate Gregerson (shoulder) before Saturday's game against the Cubs, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. The team had already announced it planned to activate Gregerson at some point during the weekend. There's now a bit more certainty on that front courtesy of president of baseball operations John Mozeliak, who stated there was a "high probability" of Gregerson being added to the 25-man roster ahead of Saturday's game. Friday marked the conclusion of the 30-day window on the veteran's rehab assignment, but the Cardinals opted to wait at least one more day for activation to give him extra time to recover from a live batting practice session Wednesday.
Gregerson (shoulder) came out of Wednesday's live batting practice session without setbacks and will be activated sometime over the weekend, Ian Quillen of MLB.com reports. Gregerson's long road to activation appears to finally be coming to an end. The veteran right-hander is coming up on the 30th and final day of his minor-league rehab assignment this Friday, but manager Mike Shildt stated Thursday he believed the team has some flexibility as to when he can be activated over the weekend.
Gregerson (shoulder) will likely return to the 25-man roster before the end of the Cardinals' current seven-game road trip, Ian Quillen of MLB.com reports. The news came directly from manager Mike Shildt, who observed Gregerson throw live batting practice to seven Cardinals hitters at Nationals Park prior to Wednesday's game. St. Louis' skipper noted that Gregerson displayed late movement on several pitches and looked good overall, but he added that how the veteran right-hander recovers over the rest of the week will largely determine his exact activation date.
Gregerson (shoulder) is scheduled to meet with coaches and trainers in Washington, D.C. on Monday to determine when he'll be activated from the injured list, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. If Gregerson checks out OK, he could be activated from the 10-day IL as early as Tuesday. The veteran right-hander made rehab appearances for Double-A Springfield on Saturday and Sunday, though the Cardinals may want him to get another minor-league tuneup in before rejoining the big-league bullpen.
