David Robertson, on the DL since May 14 with a strained left oblique, joined the team Wednesday and all indications are he'll be activated Friday. "I'm just glad to be back," he said of going back to the setup roll as Rafael Soriano has excelled as the closer. "I'm just glad to be here."

The likely roster move when Robertson is activated will be to send down Cody Eppley, who has pitched reasonably well in three separate stints with the club.
