Player Notes
Cubs activated RHP Joe Nathan from the 60-day disabled list.

Advice: Nathan has finished rehabbing from his second Tommy John surgery and will see if he has anything left in the tank for the Cubbies. The 41-year-old held a 4.81 ERA in 2014 in his last full season, although he did strike out nearly a batter per frame. Nathan allowed four runs and struck out nine over 9 1/3 innings while on a rehab assignment.

Joe Nathan will join the Cubs' bullpen Sunday.

Advice: Nathan walked three batters while recording only one out in his last appearance at Triple-A Iowa, but he had been very good before that outing and the Cubs feel the 41-year-old right-hander can offer an instant upgrade in middle relief. Nathan just finished rehabbing from his second Tommy John surgery. He hasn't pitched in a major league game since April 6, 2015.

Joe Nathan (elbow) walked three batters while recording only one out Wednesday with Triple-A Iowa.

Advice: There has been talk of Nathan joining the Cubs' bullpen this weekend, but it might not happen after such a poor showing Wednesday. Those three walks turned into two runs. Nathan, 41, now has a 3.86 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 9/5 K/BB ratio through 9 1/3 total rehab innings.

Joe Nathan (elbow) could join the Cubs' bullpen this weekend.

Advice: Nathan, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, has posted a 2.00 ERA and 9/2 K/BB ratio over nine innings during his minor league rehab assignment. The 41-year-old pitched in back-to-back games over the weekend, so he's getting close. The Cubs want to get a look at him before the trade deadline. "If the answer is in-house, it makes it a lot easier," said Cubs manager Joe Maddon. "It's important to get a look."
