Gurriel expected to be activated by Astros for Friday
Recording from left hand surgery, Gurriel finished an injury rehabilitation stint with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday and returned to Houston.
Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Gurriel will be evaluated on Wednesday.
Gurriel served a five-game suspension at the start of the season for a racist gesture made to pitcher Yu Darvish in the World Series. Gurriel played first and third during six Double-A games and hit .429 with four doubles and three RBIs. He batted .299 with 18 home runs and 75 RBIs for Houston last season.
