CINCINNATI -- Giants manager Bruce Bochy indicated Wednesday that right-hander Santiago Casilla, who has progressed steadily from right knee surgery, will be reinstated from the 15-day disabled list during the weekend or shortly afterward.
Casilla, who started and allowed one hit in two scoreless innings for Class A San Jose on Tuesday, will make one more appearance for the Minor League Giants on Thursday. If Casilla avoids setbacks and is cleared to play, his activation will follow, though Bochy said that Friday will be too early a date.
Infielder Joaquin Arias (left hamstring) ran more extensively before batting practice and was pronounced fit by Bochy to enter the game in the late innings as part of a double-switch if necessary. Arias hasn't played since June 24.
