Grimm took the loss Friday by failing to retire any of the four batters he faced in the 10th inning.

The one run Grimm gave up was unearned, thanks to an error by Mike Baxter, but Grimm also gave up two hits and a walk. Though Grimm has a 1.53 ERA on the year, his WHIP has been rising, as he's given up five hits and a walk in his last 2.2 innings. That said, his 28 strikeouts in 17.2 innings might indicate he should be pitching in high-leverage situations.

Grimm (forearm) threw a bullpen session Tuesday and is close to appearing in a minor league game, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Though there's no exact timetable for a major league return, it's still an encouraging development as it appears Grimm's inflammation that landed him on the DL may be subsiding. Once a clearer schedule for the rehab assignment becomes available, Grimm's big league timetable likely won't be too far behind.

Grimm (forearm) has begun rehabbing at extended spring training in Arizona, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

Grimm was diagnosed with inflammation just days after the season began, preventing him from making any appearances before landing on the DL. It's not apparent what kind of timeline the right-hander is on for his recovery, so his return probably shouldn't be considered imminent until he starts facing hitters again.
