Pedro Strop (hamstring) will make the second of two scheduled Triple-A rehab appearances on Thursday, and barring any issues, he should return to the Cubs' bullpen this weekend. (Jesse Rogers of Twitter)
Strop has been on the injured list since May 8. Steve Cishek has served as the Cubs' primary closer in his absence, but it remains to be seen how Joe Maddon will divvy up ninth inning duties once Strop returns.
