In his first appearance off the DL, Mujica took the loss, allowing three runs (only one earned) in 0.1 innings.

Mujica entered the game with the bases loaded and a four run lead and proceeded to give up a laser to Mike Trout that was dropped by Ben Zobrist followed by a grand slam to Albert Pujols. It was a tough spot for Mujica to be dropped into in his return from the DL, but he definitely did not fool either of the future Hall of Famers.

Mujica (hand) was reinstated from the DL on Friday.

He missed about a month after fracturing his thumb and should be available for this weekend's series against the Angels. Look for him to resume pitching in mid-leverage situations for the A's going forward.

Mujica (hand) will make another rehab appearance Thursday at High-A Stockton, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Mujica is slated to make at least one more rehab appearance before being activated from the disabled list, but it's no sure thing that Thursday will be his final outing at Stockton. His status should become more clear after Thursday's outing.

Mujica (hand) will make one more rehab appearance before returning to the A's, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.

Mujica felt good after making a rehab appearance at High-A Stockton on Monday, and he'll make one more appearance before being activated from the disabled list. It's unclear when, exactly, that will be, but it seems likely Mujica could be back with the A's before the end of the week.

Mujica (hand) will follow up his bullpen Thursday with another bullpen session Saturday, followed by a potential rehab assignment Monday with High-A Stocton, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Assuming Mujica's bullpen session Thursday goes off without a hitch, it sounds like just one more will be required before he heads out on a rehab and potentially rejoins the bullpen thereafter. If all goes well, a mid-to-late June return seems plausible, when he'll likely take a role in middle or late relief situations.
