Good news on the injury front as Jeimer Candelario returns to the lineup after he sat most of the weekend with a bone bruise on his thumb. An MRI today on Hunter Harvey only showed a mild strain. Tanner Rainey is continuing to throw live BP in Florida at the team’s West Palm Beach facility, and Carl Edwards Jr. is set to pitch on a mound tomorrow. In addition, Patrick Corbin returned from paternity leave. The corresponding roster moves were Joan Adon optioned to Triple-A and Joe La Sorsa recalled from Triple-A.
