I’d think that if they were activating him, the story would say so, so I guess he’s just traveling with the team… The official site has more.
“We’ll just have to take a look at him when he gets here,” said Frank Wren, assistant general manager. “We won’t make a decision until [Saturday].”
Marte is going to Richmond to make room for the activated Hudson, because Bobby is afraid of being short of pitchers with the two guys coming off the DL. But if Chipper is activated, they’d almost be out of players to send down. Orr, Johnson, and Francoeur have options, but they’d be pretty thinly stretched without those guys. So I am assuming for now that Chipper is not going to be activated tomorrow — well, today now. But who knows?
Davies or Colon would have to go down Sunday to make room for Hampton. The other one would have to go down when Chipper returns, whenever that is. I don’t see any other feasible options.
