• Right-hander Lendy Castillo was in the Cubs' clubhouse Friday morning, and Sveum said he likely will be activated from the 15-day disabled list at some point this weekend. Castillo has been out since May 16, retroactive to May 14, with a left groin strain.

• Right-hander Chris Volstad's quality start Thursday, coupled with Jeff Samardzija's on Wednesday against San Diego, marked the first consecutive quality starts turned in by Cubs starters since July 28-29, when Samardzija and Paul Maholm did so.
