Roenicke cited progress for right-hander Yovani Gallardo who is on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Gallardo played long toss Saturday and is expected to throw off the mound later this week.

Tentatively Gallardo is scheduled to be activated Aug. 16 against the Reds Roenicke said the day after he is first eligible.

"He should fall right back into that rotation" Roenicke said.
