• Right-hander Daniel Hudson, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, threw a simulated game Saturday and is scheduled to throw another one in five days.
The team still hopes to have Hudson back around the All-Star break.
• The news was not as good for shortstop Willie Bloomquist.
Gibson said Bloomquist recently suffered a "little" setback in his rehab from a strained oblique muscle and was shut down for a couple of days. Bloomquist did resume hitting Tuesday and Wednesday.
"We just kind of slowed him down a little bit," Gibson said. "It's not like he totally reinjured it, it just wasn't as good as it needed to be to start playing in games."
