6/29 Byrd, Cashner & Colvin

Some news and notes pregame Wednesday:

* Marlon Byrd could be activated before Sunday. He’s rehabbing with Triple-A Iowa.

* Andrew Cashner, on the DL with a strained rotator cuff, will be examined by the team doctor in Chicago. Said GM Jim Hendry: “We’ll take our time with him.”

Added Hendry on Cashner: “I’m quite confident he’ll be back pitching this year. We’ll do what’s best for his career and future.”

* Tyler Colvin is making progress at Triple-A Iowa. Said Hendry: “He’s doing fine. He’s swinging the bat a lot better. We just want to make sure he’s back to where he was last year before he got hurt. He’ll be a big part of our future.”
