Eric Milton will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday to start against the Mariners.  I would imagine A.J. Ellis is the leading candidate to be sent down to make room on the roster for Milton.

Claudio Vargas began his rehabilitation assignment on June 2, and per terms of the collective bargaining agreement his assignment must last only 30 days.  That 30 days ends on July 1, so Vargas will need to be activated on July 2.  The club may also release Vargas or ask his consent to send him to the minors, but that seems unlikely.  Shaikin tells us, "Torre said Vargas would be used in the same way Jeff Weaver is, as a long reliever and spot starter."  Once Vargas is recalled, the likely candidates to be removed from the roster are James McDonald (likely), Cory Wade (slightly less likely), or Guillermo Mota (unlikely).
