Mahle (hamstring) will be sent to Triple-A Louisville to begin a rehab stint Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Mahle is on track to toss two innings Friday, assuming Tuesday's bullpen session goes as planned. He's been on the shelf for just over three weeks, and with Cincinnati intent on bring Mahle back as a reliever, he won't need much time to build up and get his arm back in shape.
Mahle (hamstring) is expected to move to the bullpen when he is activated from the injured list, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
He tested his hamstring by running the bases Saturday and had a live batting practice session Sunday, throwing 20 pitches. He will throw a bullpen session at Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday and a rehab assignment will follow. With the addition of Trevor Bauer at the deadline and with the rest of the big-league starters pitching well, the plan will be for Mahle to work as a multi-inning reliever down the stretch.
