Short hops

• Infielder Willie Bloomquist rejoined the the team Friday after leaving San Francisco to head home and get treatment on his ailing back. Bloomquist had an injection in his back and was "pretty sore" Friday, according to manager Kirk Gibson.

"I don't know if he's going to hit today or not, but he had the injection," Gibson said. "I don't know [if he'll be available this series]. We'll see if he's going to do anything today, he just had the injection so he's still pretty sore."

Bloomquist has battled the back injury for much of the latter part of the season, including a stint on the disabled list on Aug. 11-31.

• Despite a flurry of off-days this week and next, Gibson said he will keep his rotation in turn. Wade Miley and Patrick Corbin will go Saturday and Sunday against the Padres, meaning Ian Kennedy and Trevor Cahill will take the hill for a two-game series against the Dodgers next week.

Gibson also said the team is contemplating a recall of top prospect Trevor Bauer for some late-season outings, but that no final decision on that has been reached.
